Happy Feet, Happy Life – or at least I think so!

 

Carmen Lim Commencing at CSSM – July 11th 2022

 

Carmen graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Health Science and Masters of Podiatric Practice. These qualifications, together with an extensive history in sporting footwear retail, underpin Carmen’s comprehensive knowledge of feet and footwear and have given her a broad experience in determining the best footwear choices for each patient.

 

Carmen firmly believes that healthy feet equal a healthy life. As a podiatrist, she understands the vast range of musculoskeletal injuries that occur in the foot and leg and how to deliver the most appropriate and effective treatment approaches for each individual patient. By assessing the cause of pain and designing a treatment plan to prevent future problems, Carmen is motivated to improve every patients’ quality of life.

 

Prior to her time at CSSM, Carmen has worked with the Podiatry team at Monash Health, Alfred Health and St. Vincent’s, in an acute podiatry setting with a clinical focus on wound assessment and treatment as well as managing lower limb diabetic complications.

 

Whilst knowledgeable in all types of podiatric care, Carmen has a particular interest in sport related injuries and the relationship between foot mechanics and performance or injury.

 

An active sporting background developed a passion for biomechanics, giving Carmen the understanding of how injury can impact performance and the importance of an individualised treatment and rehabilitation program.

 

In her down time, Carmen can be found pounding the footpaths training for her next running adventure or deep in the bush on her next hiking adventure.  You won’t find her standing still!
