Sinéad Tracey

Podiatrist / Co-Owner

BSc (Hons) in Podiatry

Studying at Queen Margaret University in her home country of Scotland, she finished in 2006 with a BSc (Hons) in Podiatry. After a year of work she moved out to Australia to further her career.

With over 18 years of experience she has developed exceptional clinical skills and excels in all aspects of general podiatry. Sinéad has always had a keen interest in sports injuries and biomechanics. In 2023 she completed an APODA approved certificate in Exercise Therapies in Podiatric Practice. This has increase her skill set in this area and the ability to create tailored rehab and strengthening programs to individual needs. She understands how important it is to enable someone to stay in their chosen sports and/or daily activites. She has also worked closely with dancers. Other areas of intrest include paediatric podiatry and the healthy developement of their precious feet and lower limb.

Outside of podiatry Sinéad enjoys running and is currently training for what she says is her one and only triathlon. She loves to stay fit and is completely obsessed with food and loves cooking. Over the years she has been closely involved with local musical theatre. She is known for bursting into song in the clinic (whether we like it or not). Once, she even ran off and joined the Guatemalan state circus.

Sinéad understands that everyone’s goals and expectations are different and need to be addressed individually. She takes a professional approach with a safe and friendly environment while listening to your needs and creating a treatment plan together.
