“Regular physical activity is crucial for human health. Not only does it contribute to overall well-being, but it also plays a vital role in maintaining cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health. However, many people encounter challenges when incorporating new activities into their lifestyle and end up getting injured. These setbacks can be demotivating and may even lead to discontinuation of their fitness journey. The most common injuries I often come across include heel pain and anterior knee pain. But worry not, I’m here to assist you in healing your injuries and getting you back to your desired activity level as quickly as possible. I employ high-intensity conservative approaches to expedite cellular repair, enabling you to return to your preferred 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.”
