Melanie Wu (Cocolas)
Melanie graduated from Queensland University of Technology in 2010 with a Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry) with Honours.
Melanie has a keen interest in all areas of podiatry. When she was young she developed an awareness of biomechanics and musculoskeletal injuries as she was involved heavily with sports herself – competing in numerous sporting teams and nationally for hurdles and javelin. It was during this time that Melanie aspired to be a Podiatrist after realising the importance of the lower limb in all aspects of life for both the young and elderly, whether in the sporting arena or during general day to day activities.
Going through two ACL reconstructions herself, she is aware of the importance of all aspects of the rehabilitation process. It is very important to Melanie that her patients achieve their individual goals whether that be improving general mobility, sporting goals and/or personal ambitions.
Due to the nature of the numerous Toe-Tal Podiatry locations and how they work out of other clinics, Melanie has a close relationship with the associated GP’s, other allied health professionals (physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, massage therapists, dieticians) and pharmacists to ensure the best treatment options are being provided to her patients.
Outside of work she keeps active through gym, volleyball and swimming; and has a passion for music whether it’s live or playing the drums at gigs around Brisbane. She is a mum of 2 and loves spending time outdoors!
Mel currently works at Salisbury Medical Centre and Acacia Ridge.
