So who is Chris Weber?


Let’s learn a little more about our Biomechanical Podiatrist, Avid Runner and Running Coach Chris Weber

 

Tell us something we don’t know about Chrissy Weber?

I spent 12 months working in the scuba diving industry in my 30’s – it was part of a working holiday with most of the dive work completed in WA.  It was an awesome experience!


So you’ve been a Podiatrist now for 15 years – what is it about the profession that keeps you so interested?

I have always been fascinated by the human body and how it works.  There is so much we still don’t know or understand.  Therefore, what keeps me interested is the continuous learning, improving our understanding of how the body functions and finding new ways to help people stay active.

I’ve spent the last week 18 months completing further study in Sports Medicine with the University of Melbourne.  I have completed the Graduate Certificate in Sports Medicine which provided me with an opportunity to network with other Podiatrists, Physiotherapists and Sports Physicians and to learn the most up to date evidence-based treatments for conditions such as Achilles Tendinopathy, Patellofemoral Joint pain, Femoral Acetabular Impingement and Acute Foot and Ankle injuries to name a few.


What is the most rewarding patient outcome you’ve achieved as a Podiatrist?

It’s not a specific example but I find it most rewarding when a small, low-cost change or simple advice leads to improved patient outcomes.  For example, when changing from one shoe to another can provide immediate and lasting pain relief.

 


What do you enjoy most about working at Foundation Podiatry?

At Foundation Podiatry we are a small team.  We each play a very important role in providing the best experience for our patients.  I couldn’t do what I do without the support from every member of our team and this is what makes coming to work each day very easy!


Favourite Food?

Pizza.

What is the most risky/vulnerable/perilous experience you’ve had overseas?

I’ve not had a perilous experience as such.  I have been scuba diving in Indonesia and Malaysia, cycle touring around the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands, trekking above 5000m in Nepal in remote locations – all without incident.  Maybe I’m just lucky??!!

Next holiday destination?

 Sad to say I don’t have a next holiday adventure.  I am really keen to travel overseas again but don’t have any plans just yet.
