Karl Lockett has always been a keen athlete himself, having played semi-professional football in England in addition to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu here in Sydney. He enjoys running and keeping fit in general and has endured one or two sports related injuries himself throughout his career as a Sports Podiatrist, so he understands the body and knows what it’s like to be injured.
His treatments of running injuries are practical and always aim to keep you on the move where possible.
“Most runners are addicted to the sport and don’t want to stop training so I introduce treatments into their running programme first, and only request that they take a break as a last resort. I hate sitting on the sideline and I’ll only do it if I have to”.
Most Podiatrists cover all areas of foot health. They cut toe nails, shave off hard skin and do the occasional bio-mechanical assessment. As a Sports Podiatrist, Karl only treats painful foot and leg conditions, whether a recreational athlete, a person who likes walking their dog or an elitist runner. He and his team carry out bio-mechanical assessments every day and treat adults or children with flat feet, high arches or any type of muscular-skeletal foot condition.
