Millie Brown is a British Podiatrist based in Singapore. She graduated from the University of Huddersfield (UK) with first-class honours in Podiatry and specialises in conservative management of sports related injuries, heel pain, bunions, ingrown toenails and treating paediatric cases.

With an active lifestyle and experiences with various sports such as running, cycling, swimming and weight training, Millie is popular among athletes who seek podiatric care. Having clear understanding of her patients’ priorities, Millie successfully healed injuries whilst maintaining the preferred level of activity required by her patients.

Millie enjoys her work with children, she was once a swimming instructor for children prior to her career as a podiatrist. She treats children as young as 3 years old for lower limb and walking disorders, sports injuries and soft tissue conditions. Many parents seek out to Millie for her gentle and patient nature that came from years of experience working with children.

Millie believes resolving pain and healing injury in the immediate term is imperative, but preventing injury from reoccurring in future is just as important. To achieve this, Millie works with several conservative high intensity treatments that have widely been accepted as gold standard. She is trained and certified in medical shockwave applications by the International Society of Medical Shockwave Treatments, allowing her to adapt the prescribed dosage to an array of conditions.

Sports Injuries

“Many people who run or have a higher physical output often experience pain which can be frustrating, painful and unmotivating. The most common conditions include plantar foot pain, ankle sprains and anterior knee pain. My goal is to get people back to their desired activity levels as soon as possible. This is done by utilising high intensity conservative treatments to encourage faster cellular repair to get you back to your desired level of activity sooner.”

Bunion Pain

“As someone who is genetically predisposed to bunions, I know first hand how important it is to manage and slow the development of bunions. They can be debilitating and the pain can last a long long time without management. Ideally, we want to remove the inflammation and kickstart some repair to the joint soft tissue to resolve some of the pain. Long term we need to realign the foot to offload any excess pressure to the wrong areas. This of course is not easy, identifying the stage of the bunions and how functional it is neds to be carefully taken into consideration.”

Paediatric Podiatry

“When working with children, the most concerning thing to me is when they complain of pain or they fatigue quickly. Young children are so young, their bodies are generally flexible as the bones have not fully formed which is why it is unusual for them to have musculoskeletal pain. Another red flag is skipping, or not hitting milestones at the correct age. Proper assessment and investigation are required to identify the cause. In these cases, early intervention is often needed to guide a child’s growth, reduces pain and help them reach the developmental milestones at the correct time.”

Prior to starting her career in Singapore, Millie was working with a private podiatry clinic in Yorkshire, UK, and for the National Health Service (NHS), which gave her extensive experience in treating soft tissue disorders such as ingrown toenails, warts and managing diabetic patient care while working closely with other medical specialists including vascular surgeons, orthopaedics and radiologists.

The varied background enabled Millie to gain experience in all aspects of podiatry, which guided her clinical interest towards biomechanics and musculoskeletal podiatry.

Millie believes that improved mental health comes from improved physical health. Upkeeping an active lifestyle without bodily pain reduces the occurrence of mental health complications, just as what she always believes, “When we are happier, we work harder, sleep better, and feel better which in turn creates a better environment for our friends, family and colleagues.”

Millie remains a licensed clinician with the U.K. Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and Association of Podiatric Medicine (Singapore).
