Joe graduated with a BHSc. Pod from AUT University and is registered with the NZ Podiatry Board, ACC New Zealand and a member of PodiatryNZ.
He had a strong background of community involvement and active engagement of local community members in Auckland as a sport coordinator, ensuring they are encouraged in sport, remain physically fit and stay a healthy and more active life style.
His own podiatry practice since 2014 has initially focused on a mobile community service for those who have critical needs such as the elderly and the disabled. Joe has also worked with his active contribution to targeted local community members nationwide to coordinate and manage rehabilitation needs as a front line case advisor at ACC New Zealand for over 3 years.
During this time, his key roles of cultural and communication support fostered strong positive relationships with a wide range of medical and health service providers from physiotherapists, general practitioners to medical specialists in injury management sectors.
Coming from a physiotherapy background in Korea, Joe has been interested in sport podiatry and further completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Sports Medicine. He is now excited to keep contributing his experience and skills to community and enhance benefits from multi-disciplinary services at Institute of Sports Physiotherapy in Onehunga.
