JAMES KNOX

James completed a Bachelor of Podiatric Medicine at The University of Westen Australia in 2013, and was the only graduate in WA to receive a hospital internship that year.

 

Upon completing his internship at Royal Perth Hospital, James moved into private practice where he has worked for the last 5 years alongside some of WA’s best foot and ankle surgeons and rehab physiotherapists. Having most recently worked within Perth CBD, he was the top rated podiatrist on HealthEngine during this time (2018-2019).

 

While his scope of practice is broad, he has a special interest in diabetic foot care, sports rehabilitation and paediatrics. An avid weightlifter, James placed at the State ICN Championships in 2017 as a fitness model - a background which he draws upon in practice to advise on safe ways to get back into to weightlifting post-injury.

 

Outside of practice James is a bit of a rockstar, having had 9 songs on JJJ in the last 18 months and toured the country several times with his bands
