Sean Murphy


Sean graduated from the University of South Australia in 1991 and commenced practice at Repatriation General Hospital. After his initial training in a hospital setting, Sean opened his first private practice in Victor Harbor. Sean, in his 30-year career as a podiatrist, has trained and mentored a significant number of podiatrists all over SA and interstate and is now permanently based in Adelaide Arcade.

Sean’s interest in a podiatry career stemmed from his own foot and ankle injuries relating to high level soccer in his teenage years. Exposure to a podiatrist who helped with his rehabilitation and recovery sparked an interest that would see Sean develop a passion for helping people achieve their mobility and activity goals.

Sean has worked as a guest lecturer at the Uni of SA and is currently involved in the clinical placement program. Sean is a board member of Sports Medicine Australia SA and has previously been an education committee member at SASMA.

Sean’s interest is in clinical biomechanics, musculoskeletal screening and injury prevention. He has worked with elite athletes at the highest level in many sports and was the podiatrist for the Adelaide Crows for 10 years.
