About Us

At Foot Stop our philosophy is to get to the root cause of the injury or health related problem. This approach ensures that you become educated in your condition and self sufficient in health maintenance.

Our Podiatrist and Physiotherapist work together to ensure that the best course of treatment is taken to maximise the benefit to the client and minimise the impact of any injury or health problem and so facilitate the optimal return to your recreational or work commitments.

He opened the Foot Stop Clinic in 2010 and is experienced in all aspects of Podiatry. His specialisation is in Biomechanics and Sports Injuries.
