Jake has a strong passion for musculoskeletal, sport and biomechanics podiatry. He first decided to become a podiatrist when he was about 14 and was constantly getting injured from playing state AFL and doing long distance running. Now that he works in this profession, he can help a large variety of people, whether that be high level athletes returning to running or sedentary people who are looking at increasing their activity levels.
This ignited a passion for wanting to become a podiatrist where he could diagnose, treat & prevent reoccurring sporting injuries. He has a specific interest in designing strength and conditioning programs. Jake has a firm belief about assisting patients achieving their goals. He likes to achieve this via having a close practitioner patient relationship as he likes to keep up to date in patient’s progress week by week.
Jake has a strong passion for adjunct therapies as he likes to learn various treatment alternatives to increase his scope of practice. This consists of multiple modalities including dry needling, shockwave therapy, orthotic prescription, foot mobilization and providing general foot and nail care.
Outside of Podiatry I enjoy playing the guitar, going to the gym and playing football.
