Dale Marriott

Podiatrist at Murray Bridge

Areas of Interest: Sports, Orthotics, Nail Surgery, paediatrics and injury rehabilitation.

Dale joined Footmed after concluding practice in rural South Australia in early 2017. He successfully completed his Podiatry studies at the University of South Australia, where he also studied Human Movement. Dale holds qualifications as a Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer. By combining the skills and knowledge gained from his experience in both disciplines, Dale approaches concerns from a whole body perspective, rather than simply looking at the feet in isolation. By assessing the body as a whole, and how the feet function together with the rest of the body, Dale is well equipped to assist with a broad range of foot and leg concerns.

Dale enjoys many facets of podiatry including nail surgery, paediatrics, orthotics and sports injury rehab. Coming from a sporting background, he has a special interest in musculoskeletal therapy, particularly in relation to using exercise instead of medication as a treatment option.
