Dr Sam Besnek BHS, MPP
General foot care, diabetic foot, circulation problems, flat foot, orthotics.
Qualified to provide PRP injections to foot joints.
I completed my degree of Bachelor of Health Science and Master of Podiatric Practice at La Trobe University. I’ve worked in multiple clinical settings including public hospitals, community health centres and private practices. My personal interest in sports, especially soccer and martial arts, has given me a wider understanding of how important it is to feel and be healthy.
Stemming from these personal experiences, I have a main interest in sports podiatry and treating chronic heel, shin and knee pain. I’ve adapted a combination of different therapeutic approaches to treat such conditions successfully. These include injection therapies, dry needling and orthotics prescribing.
Furthermore, my experiences lie in paediatric care, diabetic assessments and injury prevention. Once again, my work in multiple health care settings has equipped me with the experience to adequately treat such conditions.
