Greg has always had an interest in sports. He has played senior rugby for 10 years and more recently has been involved in competitive tennis.
After gaining his podiatry qualification he went on to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Medicine, and then completed a Masters degree through Otago University – being one of only a few New Zealand podiatrists with these qualifications.
He was asked to teach sports podiatry at the Auckland University of Technology and has done so part time for the last six years.
Research has also been an interest for Greg particularly in the field of biomechanics and human movement. He has performed many original studies and has presented these internationally in several different countries. He recently wrote a chapter for the prestigious biomechanical text “Biomechanics and Human Movement Science”.
Greg’s experience has seen him involved or collaborating research with several major athletic footwear companies including Asics, Nike, Salomon, and Sole Technology. Greg has always been involved with many elite athletes, sports teams, and organisations. He is currently the podiatrist for New Zealand Cricket, podiatrist for the Canterbury NPC and Super 14 teams as well as podiatrist for the Winter Olympic athletes.
Kate Apperley has been part of the SportsMed Podiatry team for 10 years and has considerable experience in treating both elite athletes and non competitive runners. Kate works with the international ballet academy, Canterbury ballet, Canterbury netball (Tactix), the Everton Football Academy and many other carded elite athletes.
