Marie Ishak-Lewis (Stirling Clinic)
Marie Ishak-Lewis, senior podiatrist, co-founder and inventor of Synxsole, graduated from Curtin University in 2004 and began her career working as a podiatrist in her private practice. Whilst working in the field of community podiatry, Marie became interested in the field of community pharmacy and promptly applied and completed a Grad.Dip.(Pharmaceutical Science) and Master of Pharmacy at the University of Western Australia (UWA), graduating as a qualified pharmacist in July 2007. With two professions under her belt, she has been actively involved in lecturing in both the Pharmacy and Podiatry Departments of UWA.
Marie currently works actively in both professions and finds they compliment each other well. However Podiatry is certainly her passion. She has invested a lot in building up her practice over the past eight years to make it a successful and advanced podiatry clinic. Marie is passionate in the field of sports podiatry and has years of experience in the advanced biomechanics of the lower limb, treating all sport-related conditions and injuries including heel pain, arch pain, ball-of-the-foot pain, achilles pain, ankle pain, shin pain, knee pain and hip and lower back pain.
In the past few years, Marie has travelled extensively attending various conferences and workshops in an effort to further her skills in advanced orthotic therapies and learn further treatment techniques including acupuncture, dry needling, myofascial release techniques, muscle energy techniques, joint mobilisations and joint manipulations. These extra and advanced treatment modalities have been vital to the successful treatment of professional athletes as well as complex and long-term patients.
