At Sydney Sports Podiatry, we have a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower leg problems. Using a detailed biomechanical assessment including video gait analysis, we can more accurately diagnose your problem and its root cause. We have expert knowledge in sports shoe prescription and where necessary, can prescribe ultra-lightweight orthotics to help try to get you back to the activity you love sooner.
Sydney Sports Med Clinic’s Podiatrist, Andrew Bull (CR PodRunner), specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower leg problems. Having previously worked with professional sporting teams such as the Sydney Swans, his treatment includes walking and running assessments and video gait analysis to determine each person’s specific requirements. The ability to analyse a persons running and walking style on a slow motion replay can lead to a far more accurate diagnosis of particular problems with style and posture.
Andrew is also a member of the Sydney Striders running club and the Northern Suburbs Triathlon Club.
This enables Andrew to customise a treatment regime including:
- Treatment of foot and ankle disorders, including skin and nail conditions (blisters, callous, ingrown toenails- conservative care and nail edge resection if appropriate)
- Biomechanical causes of back, hip, knee, leg, ankle and foot pain Prescription of corrective foot orthotics (to fit sports and/or fashion shoes)
- Advice on appropriate stretching / strengthening and training programs
- Advice on each persons specific requirements in running shoes / football boots and other sporting footwear.
As a keen runner, cyclist and Army Reserve Infantry Officer, Andrew also has the insight and experience of 3 years in sports footwear retail, over 15 years of private practice as a podiatrist, as well as over 20 years as a competitive runner (road and track up to state level).
