Andrew Bull

Sports Podiatry

West Pymble

Andrew Bull specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower leg problems.

He has worked with professional sporting teams such as the Sydney Swans and is currently working with the Australian Rugby Union  - Wallabies & Australian Rugby Sevens.  

His treatment includes walking and running assessments and video gait analysis on a treadmill to determine each person’s specific requirements.  By analysing a person’s running and walking style on a slow motion replay, it enables a far more accurate diagnosis of particular problems with style and posture.

Andrew will then customise a treatment regime:

As a keen runner, cyclist and Army Reserve Infantry Officer, Andrew has the insight and experience of 3 years in sports footwear retail, over 15 years of private practice experience as a podiatrist & over 20 years as a competitive runner.

He has participated in sports such as running- track, distance and cross country & triathlon, rugby, soccer, surfing & rock climbing.  Andrew has been interviewed for foot related articles for “The Sydney Morning Herald”, “Men’s Health Magazine”, “Good Medicine”, “Slimming & Health“ & “Cosmopolitan”.

Ray Harding -  Harding Podiatry  

Ray works out of Narrabeen Sports Medicine Centre in the Sydney Academy of Sport.  

From www.narrabeensportsmedicine.com.au:

Ray employs the latest technology to assess and treat his patients, utilising computerised pressure plate gait assessment, treadmill video gait and track assessments as well as bicycle set up to optimise cycling biomechanics.

For orthotic manufacture Ray uses a cad-cam laboratory and a scanning camera instead of old fashioned plaster casts. The orthotics are ground to prescription by a computer controlled drilling gig from a sold piece of plastic. This makes the orthotics super light and thin, but very strong. For football boots and those needing soft orthotics or less control, Ray uses premade Formthotics‚ and EVA shells fashioned by the cad-cam laboratory.

Ray puts together a Recommended Sports Shoe List to help other health professionals and their patients as well as members of the public sort out which sport shoe is best for them from the hundreds on offer in the retail outlets. This list is updated every six months from information provided by the shoe companies and their representatives, retail outlets and feedback from athletes.

Ray is the President and Fellow of the Australasian Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine and a member of Sports Medicine Australia. He attends their conferences on a regular basis. Ray is a Past President of the Australian Podiatry Association NSW and Past President of the NSW Podiatrists Registration Board, a position he held for over fifteen years. He is Chairman of the Registration Board Professional Currency Committee which instigated and manages the mandatory continuing education requirements for the Podiatry profession. He is also one of the founding directors of the Australian Podiatric Biomechanics Association.
