Ainslie has a keen interest in the high risk foot, which includes diabetes, neuropathy and rheumatoid foot conditions. Ainslie is currently a PhD candidate through QUT with a research topic on ‘Improving the screening for diabetes related peripheral neuropathy.’ The best thing about podiatry is “just helping people on a one to one basis. I like the way podiatry goes from diagnosing and assessing through to treatment for foot and leg problems.”

Martin has been with Buderim podiatry since 2004. Martin studied Podiatry at Curtin University, Western Australia (1995). Martin has also completed the Australian Podiatry Certificate grades 1 and 2.
The sort of conditions Martin likes to treat are intractable and difficult to treat pain. The best thing about podiatry is “having people walk out the door without pain”. ” I’ve made a special study of dry needling for muscle problems and the use of accupuncture for the foot and leg which has helped many people with foot and leg pain. “
