Very little focus has been paid to the feet and most of the conferences involving the feet have been in the context of diabetes and the ongoing challenge of lowering amputation rates. However, other aspect of FEET in SPORTS is no less important. Many athletes have found their performance lacking due to conditions such as flat feet, or recurring ankle sprains and injuries.

The Podiatry Symposium is organized with the purpose of ensuring that our healthcare professionals remain updated with the latest ways lower limb conditions are diagnosed and treated. Our speakers will provide insights from various angles and points of view; from the sports physician to the orthopaedic surgeon, podiatrist, physiotherapists and also the traditional chinese acupuncturist. It will be a good opportunity for delegates to meet, exchange ideas, and forge friendships and good working relationships.

We are honoured to have Mr Craig Payne, Senior lecturer in the Department of Podiatry, La Trobe University, Australia as our guest speaker for this event. He will also be conducting our post conference workshop that will include a more hands on approach to examining the lower limb and the latest theories in the construction of foot orthotic devices.
