Nicholas Roth

Podiatrist

Nicholas Roth

Nicholas  joins us all the way from the Sunshine Coast where he grew up. Nicholas moved to Brisbane as a young adult to pursue his passion for helping others and began his career in Podiatry, studying at the Queensland University of Technology.

Nicholas has played soccer at a semi-professional level, which has given him the opportunity to travel overseas and experience playing sport in various countries. He strives himself on having a positive influence on the wellbeing of his patients and ensures this through his high level of podiatric care.

Whilst Nick is experienced and enjoys all aspects of Podiatry, he has a particular interest in working with patients who are experiencing chronic pain, biomechanical (sports) podiatry and surgical procedures (ingrown toenails).

Chris Murray

Podiatrist

Chris Murray

Chris joined the FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics team in January 2018, having previously worked as a podiatrist in the Cairns region for the past 10 years in private practice. Born in Brisbane but raised in Melbourne, he moved to Cairns in 2007, chasing the sun and outdoor lifestyle.

Chris has a keen interest in sports injury rehabilitation and biomechanics, having completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Human Movement at Deakin University in Melbourne and followed this up with a Bachelor of Podiatry at La Trobe University. He graduated in 2005 and worked for just over a year in private practice in Melbourne before moving to Cairns. Chris enjoys and is experienced in all aspects of podiatry, but specifically some of his passions include gait analysis, nail surgery, dry needling and shockwave therapy. In a broader sense, Chris gets immense satisfaction in providing the best level of care to his patients, and seeing the improvements in quality of life and functionality that can be achieved.

In his spare time, Chris can generally be found outdoors – bushwalking, camping, fishing and hiking, more often with his son Jacob along for the fun and adventures. Chris has only recently rediscovered the joys of running and aims to train up for his second half marathon later in the year. Being a Redlynch local, you may come across him pounding the pavements chasing his dream with a determined look on his face!
