As a devoted athlete, having completed several triathlons and Ironman races, I know how frustrating it is to be sidelined by injuries. With over 30 years of experience in podiatry, I specialize in using state-of-the-art orthotics to get you back on your feet quickly and safely.
I trained at the University of Salford in Manchester, England, graduating after four years with a Diploma in Podiatric Medicine (DPod.M). This intensive degree program incorporates anatomy, physiology, medicine, pharmacology, biomechanics, and more. I then continued for post-graduate studies specializing in orthotics manufacturing, biomechanics, and sports medicine. I went on to practice in the UK at the Haringey Health Authority and in private practice, until making Aliyah in 2002.
I specialize in sports podiatry – preventing and treating foot and leg damage experienced by people who push themselves hard. Athletes, soldiers, and people who work all day on their feet often experience problems due to ongoing and repetitive pressure. Small differences in leg alignment and stability can turn into big problems. Sports podiatry analyses the way your foot hits the ground and how that affects the rest of your joints. With the right treatment, we can heal injuries, prevent long-term damage, and even maximize your performance.
Since 2002, I have been helping patients from my private clinic in Ramat Bet Shemesh. Located in a quiet residential area, the clinic offers appointments throughout the day, including early morning and late into the evening. I am often able to provide same-day appointments for emergency treatment. At the clinic, I treat athletes, soldiers, busy adults, and growing children. For anyone living an active lifestyle, I believe in the importance of putting your feet first.
