As well as clinical practice, many SEPA podiatrists are actively involved in research, expanding on our knowledge into the treatment and management of musculoskeletal foot disorders for pain-free movement. This helps those they treat directly, as well as demonstrating how foot health is a critical part of overall wellbeing. Their findings and insights greatly assist the quality of life for those outside the sport and exercise domain, such as people with chronic illness and injury, children with neuromuscular conditions, ageing-related issues, and those living with a disability.
SEPA works with other sport medicine health professionals and elite sporting bodies to ensure that podiatry is recognised for its contribution to athlete health and wellbeing, and that the profession continues to play an active role in furthering sports medicine. SEPA prides itself on the accessibility of its members that creates a nurturing culture leading to high-performing professionals.
