Born and bred in West Auckland, I have recently made the move to the lovely Bay of Plenty. 

Having done my placement with Foot Mechanics during my studies, I knew just how good the services provided are. I am excited to join a team with such a vast pool of knowledge and experience.

Being a keen soccer player and having succumbed to a few injuries of my own, I have always had a particular interest in biomechanics and the role podiatry can play within a wide range of sports in terms of preventing injuries and improving performance. 

 

Welcome

Thank you for choosing to see a Foot Mechanics Podiatrist. We have prepared this information to make you feel welcome at our clinic. Firstly we want you to know that your feet are in good hands. Podiatrists are registered health professionals and are the experts in lower limb health. You should feel free to ask questions at any stage during your visit to see us, we are here to help you.

A consultation with a Foot Mechanics Podiatrist will always start with a discussion with you. In medical terms we call this history taking and this helps them understand the background and context to the problem you want help with. Once they understand what you want help with, the Podiatrist will do an assessment. The assessment enables the Podiatrist to understand the medical background to your problem. The Podiatrist will then explain the findings to you, and you are welcome to ask any questions so that you understand.

The Podiatrist will explain the treatment plan to you and in most cases, treatment can start today. Again, ask any question you may have. Thanks again, and we look forward to helping you.
