Rebecca Rushton BSc(Pod) graduated from Curtin University in 1993 and has worked in private practice in Esperance WA since 2000.
Although a generalist podiatrist as the “only podiatrist in town”, Rebecca has a special interest in blister management, not least of which but for her own blister-prone feet.
Her website blisterprevention.com.au is a wealth of information on the topic and she uses this resource to help educate athletes and outdoor enthusiasts.
Rebecca also provides foot care for runners at the Adelaide 6-Day Ultramarathon each year – 95% of which is blister management.
By her own admission, she is a far cry from an academic. But more than most, she has considerable insight into this common and often under-rated foot complaint.
