On Saturday 21st of October, our Podiatrist Emilio payed a visit to the Brimbank Little Athletics Club where he offered his time and expertise to all the children and parents at that weekends event, for FREE.
After a beautiful week of sunshine, Melbourne struck everyone with a cold windy 12° day at Sassella Park.
Luckily the kids were kind enough to let Emilio participate in the group warm up, it was here that he was able to acquaint himself with all the athletes.
Throughout the day Emilio was kept busy offering free biomechanical assessments and gait analysis to all the athletes to identify any faults that could hinder their athletic performance.
With this he also provided exercise programs and advice on how to get the most out of their training, while at the same time preventing injuries that could cut their season short.
Footwear was also assessed as the correct little athletics spike is crucial in aiding performance.
At Holistic Foot Clinic we work very closely with our local Athlete’s Foot store to ensure all of our patients are fitted correctly: this not only includes size but also getting the right shoe for each event they participate in.
Additionally, parents and friends were also welcomed to have a chat to Emilio about any other concerns they had in regards to their health.
Holistic Foot Clinic would like to thank Brimbank Little Athletics Club for allowing us to come down and offer our knowledge to all involved and look forward to doing so in the near future.
