Michael is in Kingsland and Avondale every Thursday!
Michael developed a strong interest for podiatry after experiencing and watching his friends coping with lower limb injuries from badminton and football whilst studying a Bachelor of Science in Anatomy at The University of Otago. This led him to make the jump into this rapidly growing health profession. Through sporting activities and his four years of volunteering experiences at a rest home and retirement village, Michael thoroughly understands how important the well-being of our lower limbs can impact on our quality of life, as they provide us with the daily freedom of mobility.
