Nelson’s love for podiatry stems from regular visits to the podiatrist during his youth, podiatry came to be both familiar and fascinating.
The excitement of the journey ahead for the rehabilitation process and the satisfaction of getting patients back on their feet is what fuels his drive.
After graduating, Nelson moved to Adelaide to undergo a mentorship with South Australia’s premier podiatry clinic for heel pain and running injuries; Adelaide heel pain & SA running injury clinic. This experience, along with having endured and recuperated from an Achilles tendon injury firsthand, gave Nelson a direct insight into the highs and lows of what it feels like to have a condition that can be painful and quite debilitating to recover from. Nelson understands rebuilding the foundation in the feet and lower limbs can be hard at the start but with the right help and guidance, he knows it is possible to get people back to doing the things they love once again.
Outside of the clinic, good food is at the top of his list of favourite things and if you’re a foodie yourself, Nelson loves to hear about excellent restaurants, recipes, and anything and everything “food”…..please share away!
Nelson is a member of the Australian Podiatry Association
