John joins the Potter Podiatry team with almost a decade of experience in the Podiatry industry. John brings highly specialised skills in Pedorthics (the use of Custom Footwear or Modified Footwear to treat complex gait disorders & lower limb pain) as well as the provision of Custom 3D printed Ankle Foot Orthoses & Foot Orthoses.

John is our go to Podiatrist for:

  • Custom-made footwear for children & adults
  • 3D printed Custom made Ankle Foot Orthoses
  • Complex Paediatric & Adult gait disorders

John is an enthusiastic and passionate Podiatrist with particular expertise in Paediatrics, Musculoskeletal/ Sports injuries, Pedorthics and working with NDIS participants to reach their goals. Highly regarded in North Queensland as an expert in the manufacture and prescription of Custom Footwear and Ankle-Foot Orthoses (AFOs), we are delighted to have John provide these highly specialised services for our patients here on the Sunshine Coast.

John’s experience in the Pedorthic & Podiatry field has resulted in the prescription of ankle-foot orthoses or custom footwear for many individuals, particularly through the NDIS. Some of this work has been revered by patients as life-changing for their pain, mobility & independence. This is John’s favourite aspect of being a Podiatrist, where he feels the most challenged and proud of the results he & his patients can achieve.

Working for one of Australia’s leading Orthotic laboratories, John honed his skills in the prescription, design and manufacture of custom foot orthoses. During this time he spent years under the tutelage of Pedorthists, Orthotists & Bootmakers learning the nitty gritty, hands-on aspect of footwear design, repair, manufacture and modification. John has combined this experience with his knowledge & understanding of Podiatry & Gait mechanics to provide you & your family with the support you need to keep you moving.

Having represented Queensland as a track & field athlete, John knows what it takes to keep you on the playing field. His interest and experience in long distance running brings a hands-on approach to rehabilitation, injury prevention and the correction of biomechanical abnormalities to reduce injuries or improve function.

John is committed to serving his community by providing the highest quality care for his patients. Taking a holistic, patient-centred approach, John treats the individual rather than solely the lower limb problem. His passion and commitment to his patients has helped thousands of patients in North Queensland. John is excited to bring this energy & experience to the Sunshine Coast & to utilise Potter Podiatry’s cutting edge technology to optimise his patient’s outcomes.

We are delighted to have John join the team at Potter Podiatry Noosaville & Birtinya.
