Justin Chong is a highly regarded podiatrist in NZ and has been involved in sports medicine, musculoskeletal pain, management of the foot and ankle after surgery and diabetes.  He is currently involved with the NZ Breakers, Auckland City Football, and NZ Athletes under the High Performance Program.

Justin knows first hand how injury and pain limits physical and emotional well being and this motivates him to see clients pain free as fast as possible. Whether its an elite basketballer, weekend warrior pounding the roads, a business executive or mother doing their first half marathon, working together as a team with realistic expectations and clear goals we achieve results. Empowering clients to get better and seeing them pain free is what drives Justin to do more everyday for his clients.

As team director Justin is proud of the Bigfoot team. One of his greatest visions is developing a team of successful podiatrists who are confident and thrive in the profession. Developing a unique culture with a clear vision delivers a world class service we feel proud of each day. This allows the company to strive for bigger challenges and create innovative methods to treat foot and leg pain.

Justin has always been a keen sportsman. You will often find him grinding up a hill on his mountain bike or out running or smashing a boxing bag.

Sarah Gardner graduated from AUT in Podiatry after completing a Diploma in Sport and Recreation. Upon graduation, Sarah moved to Melbourne where she worked in a large multi disciplinary practice on the Mornington Peninsula. She then moved to Canada and was lucky enough to live and work in Whistler, British Columbia, before working in London as the principal podiatrist for a small but busy private practice.
Sarah has a particular interest in rehabilitation and post-surgical cases, as well as musculoskeletal injuries in both adults and children. Getting people back on their feet, is a primary focus for her and she incorporates a range of modalities into her treatment plans.
An avid sports enthusiast, Sarah enjoys trail running and mountain biking in her free time and getting some time in on the ski slopes whenever possible. She is also a keen participant in Crossfit.
