Susan Ackerley Bsc (Hons) Pod. W.A
I am the proprietor of Rightstep Podiatry. I qualified with an Honours degree as a Podiatrist in 2005, after 4 years of study at Salford University in England. During my years of training, I was able to work within the local National Health System hospitals to gain experience with high risk foot conditions. I particularly enjoyed training with the diabetic foot patients at the Manchester Foot Hospital.
Since graduating, I have run my own podiatry practice both in the United Kingdom and in Canning Vale. Rightstep podiatry was set up in 2009 and we are now open 4 1/2 days a week.
During our work we undertake regular professional development courses, as an example of previous courses and treatment, I now include at the practice:
- Acupuncture/ Dry needling
- Mobilisation & Manual therapy
- Kinesiology Strapping
- Diabetic reviews and Neurovascular assessments
- Laser Therapy LTU-904
- Orthotic Therapy with up-to-date technology (3D scanning)
- SWIFT treatment for plantar warts
- OTC inserts
- Exercise advice & programs for rehab
I am also proficient in providing Biomechanical assessments, orthotics and nail surgeries. During the last few years I have also had the pleasure of working with Mark Ould at Malibu Podiatry, where we can see up to 200 patients a week ranging from Diabetics to Navy personnel. I look forward to helping you and your family to see, feel and enjoy the benefits of Podiatry care.
Dr. Alycia Lee DPM BBiomedSc
I am Alycia and I am the newest addition to the team at Right Step Podiatry.
I moved from Malaysia with my immediate family in 2011 and have been in Perth ever since. English is considered my first language, but I can still speak conversational-level Mandarin.
I recently graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. Prior to completing my DPM degree, I completed a Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences degree, majoring in Medical Sciences. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a profession that can be challenging, but also incredibly rewarding.
The most significant learning experience I had throughout my degree was my experience within the Great Southern region, especially in Albany. Prior to graduating, I had the opportunity to work as a podiatry assistant for 5 weeks as well as complete my final 6-week block of placements there and was exposed to all aspects of podiatry. I am particularly interested in musculoskeletal pathologies, biomechanics, orthotic therapy, as well as diabetic foot care.
During my time off, I enjoy reading, completing 1000-piece puzzles, attending workout classes as well as exploring new places to have brunch.
