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. Since his move, he has worked predominantly with patients with musculoskeletal pain in their feet and lower limbs, including national and international level athletes. He furthered his interest in managing musculoskeletal conditions completing a Post-Graduate Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine through the University of Otago Medical School. Alex loves helping patients of all ages and abilities, from your weekend gardener through to elite level athletes and uses his training and experience as a Rehabilitation Coach to provide comprehensive plans that get people back to doing what they love. He has a special interest in managing persistent musculoskeletal injuries and chronic conditions, receiving further training and mentorship in the science of pain and management of complex injuries. In addition to his clinical work, he develops courses on the management of lower limb injuries and pain, and provides specialised mentorship for Podiatrists in Australia, UK, Ireland and India. He is also an education partner for the Norway-based research group CauseHealth and has recently been recruited to help write academic papers on the best management for plantar heel pain (commonly known as plantar fasciitis). 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.
