Leonardo da Vinci once stated: “The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” Each contains 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments all working together to provide support, stability and mobility. Yet it’s easy for us to take our feet for granted.
Anna Crawford and Jess Knox, podiatrists at Redfern Village’s Great Feets Podiatry practice have many years of experience treating foot and lower leg problems and understand the importance of good foot health.
“Until pain or problems develop we often underestimate the importance of taking good care of our feet. Our feet can mirror our general health,” said Anna.
But it’s not just in the name; Anna and Jess have also had their own share of great feats. Anna has gained post-graduate qualifications in Diabetes Education and has forged a career specialising in high risk foot wounds, while Jess represented Australia in the winter sport of Skeleton and was selected in the 2012 Australian Olympic 4x100m relay team.
“Sport has always been my passion. Now as a podiatrist I can use my personal experience when treating both elite and social athletes to help them be their best,” said Jess.
Anna and Jess’ passion and specialties have led to a growing relationship with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, with the practice now seeing players on a regular basis.
