Rachael Nash-Ferguson (Coogee Clinic)
Rachael Ferguson, Principal Podiatrist, graduated from Curtin University in 2004, beginning her career working as a podiatrist in community health and private practice. While working in community health, Rachael was actively involved in the community in presenting and public speaking at seminars, including appearing regularly on Curtin FM with Jenny Seaton talking about common podiatry related complaints.
Rachael is passionate about health and wellness and is experienced in all aspects of podiatry including general treatment, children, sports injuries, nail surgery and advanced biomechanics.
Shortly after graduating Rachael discovered her passion in biomechanics, chronic pain and injury. Over the years that followed she completed many courses in dry needling, acupuncture, soft tissue therapy and manual techniques in the attempt to improve her skills, knowledge and developing more effective treatment plans for her patients.
Rachael also invented a shoe insert (orthotic) called Synxsole (featured on Channel 10’s hit TV show Shark Tank) where she landed a deal with Shark, Andrew Banks. Outside of the clinic, Rachael leads an action packed and full life including being the CEO of Synxsole Orthotics, enjoying spending quality time with her husband and kids, blogging about her health and wellness journey through “The Healthy Podiatrist” as well as writing e-books on common podiatry complaints.
