Toowoomba’s Integrated Care And Optimised Health

About Optimise Health

Combining our knowledge, skills and experience to deliver holistic treatment solutions that are made for you.

It is well-known that most pains and problems don’t just have one cause - they have many. Damage to your body can be building up for weeks or months before any symptoms start. Specific problems may indicate other underlying concerns that may affect you in other ways.

Our experienced practitioners understand this, and that when a holistic approach to your health and well-being is taken, you reap the benefits.

We keep our eyes on the bigger picture - your overall health. We utilise the strengths that each of our professions has to help you look after your health - both present and future. We’ll refer you within the clinic when it may help you achieve optimum health and recovery outcomes.

Troy Parsons

It is Troy’s incredible vision, passion and drive that has seen The Podiatrist flourish to be the world-class practice it is today.

Being able to walk, run and do the things you love without pain means that you are equipped to perform at your best and exceed your goals. It is with this belief, over 15 years of industry experience, and Troy’s fantastic values that has led The Podiatrist to be the vibrant, welcoming and innovative clinic it is today.

Troy’s driving force and his why - the reason he does everything he does - is all about realising his full potential and helping others realise theirs. This has seen Troy create The Podiatry Hive alongside his business mentors to help inspire and enhance podiatrists in their private practice across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. This regularly sees Troy speaking internationally and conducting workshops with the aim to raise the bar for podiatry globally.

Pieter Van Der Kooij

Pieter holds degrees in both Physiotherapy and Podiatry, and combines these to optimise rehabilitation in both acute and chronic problems. Piet is constantly learning and enhancing his skillset, and has built on his Podiatry & Physiotherapy degrees by becoming a pilates and slacklining instructor. He also specialises in dry needling and water-based rehabilitation programs.

Piet’s passion is to help people become what they dream to be. Creating pathways and programs is a big part of this, as well as connecting people with the right multi-disciplinary healthcare team, like we have at Optimise Health.

Lyle Lucht
Dip.F.P.; MBA (Exec) (HD)

Massage therapy was a vital tool that Lyle himself used when recovering from many different injuries he incurred over years of playing sport (including broken bones, ligament damage, operations and fasciotomy of calves for compartment syndrome.)

Lyle first experienced the benefits of working in an integrated health practice when working with an excellent chiropractor, shortly before joining the Optimise Health team. Lyle is passionate about helping improve his patient’s quality of life, and to be able to do so surrounded by a great network of like-minded and trusted health professionals to refer to when it may be of benefit to them.
