TREATING EVERY BODY LIKE A CHAMPION SINCE 2005

Our team of sports podiatrists are highly experienced in lower limb injury management and are dedicated to efficiently getting our patients back to sport, gym, work, travel and beyond. We use modern assessment methods to deconstruct your injury, communicate your diagnosis and formulate your treatment program. We blend effective short term pain relief with long-term injury resolve strategies, so you can get back on track with an increase in strength, function and performance. We help all active individuals as well as upcoming and elite athletes with their pain and performance goals. We are proudly the team Podiatrists for Penrith Panthers NRL and NSW Swifts Netball.

About US

We are lucky enough to do what we love, every day. No two feet are the same, so we pride ourselves on drawing on our experience and thinking outside the square to resolve problems. We are passionate about actively listening to our patients history, concerns and goals, and then working to put the plan together. Our Podiatry degrees provided the theory, however our unique perspective is a result of our experience working within large multi-disciplinary teams for over a decade, allowing us to develop our own contemporary methods of assessment and management.

With the majority of our patients finding us through word of mouth and referrals, we strive to provide a positive experience for every patient with friendly, down-to-earth communication and outstanding service.

Our PROGRESSIVE philosophy: 

We believe foot pronation ("rolling in") is a necessary component of foot function to enhance shock absorption and allow soft tissue structures to move through a normal range of movement. For that reason, it is very rare that we prescribe hard orthotics that block pronation altogether. Our customised orthotics are made from a flexible shell, allowing the foot to move within a normal range of motion to promote natural shock absorption, pain relief and long-term biomechanical benefit. 

Our orthotics are manufactured using technologically-advanced 3D printing system to ensure the highest degree of prescription accuracy.
