Lachlan completed his Masters in Podiatric Medicine and Bachelor of Health Science at La Trobe University in Melbourne and is our resident 'running guru'. After graduation, he started his own portable podiatry business whereby he fine-tuned his practical skills whilst seeing residents at St Vincent facilities and home visits twice a week.
Lachlan’s passion for podiatry began at an early age of fourteen following a successful rehab program after a motorbike accident. This experience left him with an appreciation for the positive impact that podiatry intervention can have on individuals’ quality of life.
Lachlan is a passionately dedicated practitioner with a keen interest in lower limb biomechanics, the human gait cycle, nail surgery and treating foot pain. He places significant importance on the 1st MTP (big toe) joint function. He has a keen eye for gait analysis, which he has developed while being trained by the Australian Athletics podiatrist.
Lachlan is driven by the need to help improve patients’ quality of life. He is best aligned with the tissue stress theory and uses this in his diagnosis and treatment plans. He has seen some remarkable results incorporating shockwave therapy into his treatment plan.
