With this in mind, Melissa will provide education around you and your injury. Due to actually understanding your pain, you can then have the best understanding of how to fix things in the short and long term!

Melissa embraces an active role in the Podiatry Profession. Being an active association member, she loves to contribute to the growth of Podiatry across Australia! She has done this by creating an online facebook group for Podiatrists named “Rethinking Podiatry’ which is growing at a fast rate. Because of this, Melissa and Pod Fit Podiatry have a strong following around Australia!
