Stuart Bailey B.Pod. B.Com
Stuart is a founding partner and COO of Erica Dash Podiatry with a special interest in sports rehabilitation, dry needling, foot mobilisation therapy and biomechanics.
Stuart changed careers in 2006 from accounting to podiatry as he has a particular interest in improving people’s quality of life. Stuart was in the first podiatry intake in Newcastle University (Ourimbah Campus), being one of the first ever locally trained podiatrists to graduate.
Stuart worked at the clinic that pioneered Foot Mobilisation Therapy in Australia, partaking in their many successes of correcting foot and leg complaints by mobilising the 33 joints of the foot and prescribing specific strengthening exercises to assist the joint to stay in its corrected position.
Stuart has a particular interest in knee pathologies. He has had great success in treating patellofemoral pain syndrome and knee osteoarthritis often prolonging or preventing the need for knee replacement surgery.
