Our Team

Shay McClurg – Podiatrist


Since starting my first clinic in 1989 I have enjoyed every aspect of podiatry. I have a particular interest in biomechanics and have developed a special interest in treating injuries and assessing dancers with a view to avoiding injury, especially when young dancers move towards pointe` work. This interest is responsible for the invention of Arch Angels, which are flexible insoles, patented in Australia, and sought by dancers via the website from all over the world. I enjoy the challenges of making people’s active lives more comfortable and I find treating children is particularly rewarding.


My professional life has also been rewarding as I have had the opportunity to contribute to the profession in a variety of ways. I was President of the Australian Podiatry Association (Qld branch) from 1993-2000 and in 1997 I was appointed as one of two Queensland health representatives to the Health Rights Advisory Committee. I have been a Board member of the Podiatrists’ Registration Board and Member of the Medical and Allied Health Professional Group. I am currently the National representative for Podiatry services with a major Private Health Insurance Company.
