About Us

Why is Achieve Podiatry different?

We are a distinctive podiatry clinic conveniently located alongside a team of sports doctors and physicians. Our expertise extends to treating and managing individuals of all ages and backgrounds dealing with both chronic and acute pain and injuries.

This unique positioning allows us to offer optimal and seasoned care to people from diverse walks of life. While we frequently assist athletic individuals, our commitment extends to helping anyone seeking relief from pain, aiming to facilitate happier and healthier lives on their feet.

Achieve Podiatry caters to more than just the "sporty" crowd. Our services are designed for individuals seeking to return to meaningful activities hindered by pain, those aiming to enhance their overall health, regain the joy of walking, and gain insights into their conditions along with actionable steps to improve them.

Moreover, Blake and Justin share their knowledge by teaching and lecturing at Newcastle University on injury treatment and management, and actively consult with various sports leagues, including the NRL, A-league, NPL, WNRL, and conduct training sessions in Newcastle.
