Trevor Proskewitz, Podiatrist
BSc Hons (UK) ND Pod (SA)
Trevor qualified as a podiatrist in 1988 in Johannesburg South Africa, and went into private practice shortly thereafter. As a keen cyclist and with experience in marathon running, he has a special interest in sports biomechanics. This facilitated his involvement in the Run/Walk for Life programme – a medically sound, scientific fitness plan for people of all ages, weight and fitness levels. Another area of specific interest to Trevor is the developing paediatric foot – the importance of recognising and treating both malformations and gait abnormalities in children.
Trevor is certified as a PinPointe™FootLaser™ provider used for the management of Fungal nails, and has been trained in the use of Orthema digital technology to manufacture custom made orthotics. He gives talks on The Diabetic Foot, The Aging Foot, and The Running Foot. From 1998 to 2002 he served as Chairman of the South African Podiatry Association and lectured final year podiatry students for 11 years in South Africa. He has also sat as a Councillor to the Australian Podiatry Association. Trevor believes in staying true to his beliefs of being a general podiatrist who also isn’t afraid to treat the ‘tough feet issues’ when the need arises.
Andrew Saunderson, Podiatrist
BHSc (Movement Science) Sydney University, B Pod Med Hons, Western Sydney University
Andrew started his health career in a specialist biomechanics clinic in 2015. Working closely with several sports and paediatric podiatrists, chiropractors and osteopaths, he gained from their knowledge and experience and is trained in foot mobilisation, dry needling, massage therapy and shockwave therapy to name a few. As a keen athlete and active member of the community, Andrew is involved in everything from running and cycling to functional fitness and Tough Mudder and everything in between. As a result, Andrew values the importance of being able to enjoy what you love doing pain-free. Andrew believes movement is medicine which should be grounded in a solid foundation of functional foot strength-based training to be used for both prehab and rehab.
Andrew’s special interests include musculoskeletal conditions, sports injuries and biomechanics, where his focus is on optimising function, injury prevention (prehab) and rehabilitation of the lower limbs and feet in children and adults. These interests are reflected in his research where he worked closely with Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists and Sports Scientists. He studied the effects of fatigue on foot and lower limb function during repetitive loading activities such as running.
Andrew has experience in biomechanical, musculoskeletal, surgical, high-risk and general foot care, both locally and abroad. He is also trained in the use of Orthema Digital Technology and Swift Microwave Therapy. Andrew thrives on challenging podiatry issues and is serious about feet and the lower limb. He is passionate about treating the cause of your pain; not just the symptoms.
He is available at Barangaroo as follows:
8am – 4pm on Mondays and Wednesdays
