Alan McCulloch is the experienced podiatrist behind the successful All Podiatry business in Brisbane. His successful career began in 1989 and throughout his 20 years experience Alan has provided treatment and advice to many top grade Australian sports teams including the Australian Cricket Team, Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Bulls as well as several triathlon organisations.
Alan began his podiatry career with a passion for customer service and health care.
“My job is all about problem solving. People come in with pain or discomfort and I look for an answer. I get enjoyment out of working with and helping people.”
As the Principal of All Podiatry and The Shoe Co, Alan splits his time between treating Australian sports teams and helping the residents of Brisbane with their podiatry needs. He is also responsible for the training and development of the staff at All Podiatry.
“I am heavily involved as a mentor for the podiatrists working in our practice to challenge them to do [the best] job possible.”
Alan has also worked in close conjunction with Adidas on the development of podiatry footwear. “The evolution of podiatrists embracing footwear as part of their practice is much the same as how optometrists use glasses and sunglasses in their practice.”
All Podiatry was the first to incorporate a shoe store into their practice, setting the standard for other podiatry businesses around Australia.
“When I first started I realised it was hard to separate footwear and podiatry so I embraced it… I am proud to say we have a booth maker in house who is not only able to manufacture orthotics, but can also perform footwear modifications…Now lots of practices are attempting the same format.”
Alan believes the footwear revolution is the future of the podiatry profession.
“A lot of the current changes have been made due to advances in materials technology and advanced research… currently there is a push for footwear that is more minimal, less controlling and allowing more natural motion.”
Alan McCulloch takes great pride in All Podiatry as a leader in innovation and practice standards. His business is based around the idea that every person deserves the highest quality podiatry care – from the latest research and assessment tools to the very best in experience and technique.
“[At All Podiatry,] we work closely with surgeons, general doctors, trainers and physios to constantly improve our treatment philosophy… We try to make sure that if it involves a foot problem, we can fix it.”
