Originally from Melbourne, Podiatrist Beth Fechner completed her studies at La Trobe University in 2008. She studied Podiatry to help people with pain and keep them active. Beth has worked in Hobart and Sydney, mostly in private practice. She spent 2 years at the Royal Hobart Hospital working with “high risk feet” – people at risk of ulcers or amputation. Beth has experience working with people of all activity levels, from pre-schoolers to 90+ year olds.
“Keeping active is vital for our physical and mental health, and in the later years our independence. Since commencing work with Neil and the Vertical Foot Alignment System in 2016, I have been able to correct foot posture within the tissue’s ability to move, therefore produce more effective orthotics. I had not been able to consistently achieve this when using traditional casting methods.”
Beth and her partner Antony keep active with their Labrador, Ralph, kicking his favourite soccer ball or walking around Sydney’s beautiful parks, and swimming in summer.
