Tess’ love for health, sport and people drew her to podiatry, following her own experience with ankle and knee injuries. Her own lived experience with injury ensures Tess can understand her patient’s experience of pain and the challenges of returning to full function. Currently, Tess is a keen runner and has previously played a number of sports including basketball, tennis, soccer, netball, hockey and footy. Therefore, she understands the movement patterns and injuries associated with these sports and enjoys working with athletes of all levels. 

Tess’s key areas of interest in podiatry:

  • Plantar heel pain- plantar fasciitis and other common conditions related
  • Acute and chronic ankle injury treatment and rehab
  • Chronic foot and ankle pain 
  • Arthritis management of the feet
  • Bunion, toe injuries and forefoot issues 
  • Shin pain 
  • Calf pain and injury
  • Hypermobility
  • Running or walking gait assessments
  • Foot strength and balance programs
  • Tendinopathies of the lower limb and foot
  • Post surgical rehab
  • Kids feet
  • General skin and nail care

When not in the clinic, Tess loves hitting the beach for a surf or bodyboard, travel and watching the footy.
