One of our podiatrists Dr Monica Zheng has recently returned from the 26th Annual International Association of Dance Medicine and Science conference in Hong Kong, where she became acquainted with the most recent research and techniques in the world of dance.
Mingling with the world’s best in dance surgery, rehabilitation and training, she has acquired new techniques in the assessment and treatment of dance-related injuries.
It is evident that there is a growing amount of research related to dance and more of a focus on the prevention and management of injuries, a promising sign for dancers and health professionals alike!
Did you know that Pulse Podiatry offers professional pre pointe assessments for ballet dancers? This is an evidence-based evaluation of strength, flexibility, posture and technique. The pre- pointe assessment for dancers looking to go en pointe as well as those already en pointe. This identifies any weaknesses in the musculoskeletal system that are risk factors for injury.
We never want you to miss a chance to dance.

If you're interested in a Podiatric Medicine career- I highly recommend it!

With the given surge in social media engagement and school derived use of screen based devices in this digital age, there are now growing concerns for the long term impact of children and adolescents in relation to their physical, mental and social health.
Parents are invited to an evening that includes a panel of child health experts addressing the impact of screen time on child development and how to strike a balance for your child at home.
Professor Datuk Jimmy Choo was in Perth this week providing inspiration to a new generation of creative minds! Jimmy Choo is a fashion icon known for creating quality and stylish couture footwear for high profile women such as the late Princess Diana, Nicole Kidman and Julie Roberts.
I was fortunate to have an exclusive opportunity to spend time with Professor Choo where he shared his expertise about all things related to feet, shoes and (much to my delight!) expressed support towards Pulse Podiatry! After all, we do have something in common.
A belief in the importance of comfortable, healthy feet, as they are the stable foundation to the rest of your body. If your feet aren't comfortable, this will affect your lifestyle, health, confidence and well being!
Jimmy Choo's advice to us? Have passion, share knowledge, respect your teachers and those around you, work with good intentions and 'work from the heart'.
Thank you very much Professor Choo!
