Alex Adam – Dip App Sc (Pod)
|Alex has been practicing podiatry in both a clinical and research for the past thirty years. He commenced practice in Western Australia where he continued his studies in functional anatomy and biomechanics at Curtin University.
Alex has been the chief Podiatrist for several local football clubs including the early stages of the Dockers and Hawthorn. He developed treatment regimes for the prevention of injuries and the improvement of on ground performance. During 1996 to 2002 Alex was the chief Podiatric consultant for the Hawthorn Football club and worked closely with the Hawthorn Physiotherapy Clinic. He continues that passion working still with football today and its young stars.
Alex has also been a consultant to several Olympic and Commonwealth game athletes where his knowledge lead to development of techniques to improve stability in the lower limb thus improving the performance of these athletes.
In 1996 Alex moved to Melbourne to continue his research at Melbourne University, looking into the structure of the mid foot and thus developed a unique technique to improve the stability of the lower limb. This technique see’s the reduction of the effects of osteoarthritis in ankles, knees, hips, and the lower back.
After completing his research Alex commenced practice opening AMA Podiatry in McKinnon Victoria where with a team of three podiatrist runs a very busy and holistic practice.
