What we do

Our Baby Steps Podiatrist specialises in the assessment and treatment of mobility, foot and ankle issues in children, from baby’s first step to sporting injuries and gait development. We use manual therapies (soft tissue therapies, joint mobilisations, dry needling, etc.) combined with a variety of exercises (balance, strength, stretching & activation) to ensure that your condition is addressed in a timely and complete manner. We also prescribe orthotics, make footwear recommendations and recommend specific exercises as part of a treatment plan.

Angelo Velho

Sports & Paediatric Podiatrist​

Angelo is a highly experienced podiatrist in the field of sports and paediatrics, having worked in private practice alongside both elite and junior athletes. A graduate from the University of Western Australia, Angelo has strived to provide the most optimal and individualistic approach to assess, diagnose, and provide treatment for his patients.

His primary passion is biomechanics and assessing how and why both acute and overuse injuries occur across both children and adults. Thanks to his many years working at The Athletes Foot, he has retained a strong focus on footwear and orthotic therapy. 

Angelo has also developed a special interest in the treatment and rehabilitation of ankle sprains and Achilles pathologies. Angelo has worked alongside junior gymnasts, ballet dancers, and netball players to also provide treatment for a range of musculoskeletal and joint complaints and is passionate about keeping athletes active throughout their rehabilitation. 

As a born-and-bred Londoner who grew up with a football at his feet (he also passionately supports West Ham United), Angelo has represented and participated in many sporting codes throughout his life including swimming, rugby, and cricket. He is still very active, representing South Perth United Soccer Club in the FootballWest Amateur Leagues. Thanks to his personal experience with injuries in sports, Angelo has adopted significant consideration for each individual’s circumstances and promises to ‘get you back on your feet’ pain-free. 

Excellence in medical and allied health care for babies, children and parents.
