Bio

Kyle grew up in Wagga Wagga, NSW and his podiatry journey has taken him across NSW, VIC, QLD, TAS, and most recently the ACT. Kyle has previously sat on the Sports Medicine Australia Tasmanian State Board/Council for 3 years, has received $30,000 worth of scholarships and has gone on to further his education and knowledge base through a large variety of courses. Outside of podiatry Kyle has a keen interest in all things sport. Throughout school he represented NSW at cross country and 800m events, while setting multiple High School records in 800m, 1500, and cross-country distances. He also played soccer for the National Premier League (NPL) Division 1, whilst living and working in Hobart, and had many years of Australian rules football (finishing up last year with the ANU Griffins). However, after multiple broken bones, 12 shoulder dislocations, half a fake tooth and one shoulder reconstruction he now prefers watching local sport from the sideline with a cold beverage, running, skiing, and taking his Kelpie out to kick the footy rather than throwing his body around for more punishment.

Bio

Originally from Adelaide, Alex completed his high school and undergraduate Podiatry degrees in Melbourne before moving to Canberra to work under 3 x Olympic Medical Team Podiatrist Paul Fleet. During 4 years of mentorship he also completed the Australian Podiatry Association course in Podiatry biomechanics and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine through the University of Otago Medical School, which he was awarded with Distinction, the highest honor conferred by the University. After completing his mentorship and further studies, Alex developed a special interest in managing complex and chronic conditions. This led him to studying the fields of neurology, immunology, the science of pain, rehabilitation and strength and conditioning. This prompted Alex to create a unique way of practicing that focuses on each patient as an individual and developing a rehabilitation plan based on their goals and current abilities. In addition to his clinical work, Alex is the founder and director of Podiatry Systems, an Australian based Podiatry education company, lectures to national and international audiences and helps create social media education content for the UK-based Better Clinician Project. A previous volleyballer and martial artist, you’ll now find Alex in a gym, out running or in the cheese aisle of his local deli.
