ABOUT FOSTER PHYSIO
Foster Physio was established in 2011 in Pound Road Medical Centre in Narre Warren by Joan Wee. Having worked in the area for 6 years already, Joan had built up a strong client base and relationships with doctors and specialists in that area. There was also significant growth in population numbers in the surrounding suburbs of Berwick, Clyde North, Hampton Park and Hallam.
Due to the growing demand, Mark Foster joined the practice and brought along his expertise and passion in sports physiotherapy.
In 2013, a second location in Colchester Medical Centre, Bayswater North was created.
After Joan and Mark were married in June 2014 the name ‘Foster Physio’ was established.
JOAN WEE (FOSTER)
Joan is qualified in Pilates instruction and uses this to teach many clients how to become stronger than before the injury to prevent future repetition of the pain. She also uses Pilates to help her clients develop a strong core and improve at their chosen sport. Since graduating from the University of Melbourne, she has completed extensive post graduate studies in sports taping, sports physiotherapy, clinical pilates, chronic pain, women’s health, occupational physiotherapy and dry needling.
Mark’s strengths are in his strong scientific based approach to injury assessment and management. He utilises a hands on approach of manual treatment, which includes soft tissue and myofascial releases, joint and spinal mobilisations and exercise prescription. Mark has particular interest in tendon related injuries (such as tennis elbow, rotator cuff and Achilles injuries) and lower limb biomechanics. He has previously worked as the senior physiotherapist with Oakleigh Chargers football club and Box Hill soccer club.
