Learn About Steven

Our Podiatrist

As a service our Podiatrist Steven is also an expert at creating and designing custom orthotics for kids as well as adults. He has an extensive experience with not only designing orthotics but teaching orthotic theory and the manufacturing processes of orthotics for Podiatry undergraduates at La Trobe University.

However it should be noted that an orthotic in Steven’s mind is never the first port of call unless your child is in significant pain or well outside the norm of movement patterns and foot posture for their age. Hence rest assured that any foot and lower limb assessment will entail an effective and conservative methodology of treatment.

So keep your child happy, ensure they are running around safely with longevity in mind. And most importantly that the foundations of their movement coming from their feet are well looked after.

Steven’s Professional Journey

Steven completed his bachelor of Podiatry in 2011 as well as his certificates 3 and 4 in fitness. Since then he has undertaken a journey in elite sports medicine for 4 years, taught Podiatry undergraduates from 2014 – 2017 and started his own business, Melbourne Sports Podiatry. However, Steven wanted to make an impact to more than just people in sports, so he created the values behind The ACPAC in 2018. His passion as a result has moved into helping not only athletes but also the day to day parent, school kid, desk worker or recreational gym user to attain the same level of care as an athlete without the stigma.
