John Osborne

Sports Podiatrist

John is an experienced SPORTS PODIATRIST and the first Podiatrist in Australia to successfully earn the Certified Sports Podiatrist credential awarded by the Australian Podiatry Association. He is currently completing his PhD at La Trobe University about the role of muscle strength in plantar heel pain (plantar fasciitis).

He is particularly interested in injuries such as heel pain, shin splints, sesamoiditis, patellofemoral pain, and tendinopathies of the foot and ankle. John also has experience managing patients with rheumatological conditions (e.g., arthritis), blisters, ingrown toenails, general foot care, and chronic disease management such as diabetes.

With a background in strength and conditioning, John always considers a holistic view of the foot and ankle, focusing not only on foot orthoses but individualized rehabilitation and strengthening programs for each of his patients. John has also managed both amateur and elite sportsmen and sportswomen from AFL (Australian Rules), gymnastics, basketball, soccer, triathlon, and cricket.
