Since qualifying, Bria has opened her own clinic on Mill Street in the town of Westport and is enjoying the growth and development of the busy practise.
Speaking about her work she said: "I am delighted with the progress I have made in business over the past few years. Watching my business grow and prosper is exciting and I gain a huge element of job satisfaction daily when I can help to heal someone from an ailment or complaint.
"People are becoming more aware of their health and lifestyle needs and Podiatry is gaining much-needed recognition as an integral part of one's overall health and wellbeing.
"We are reliant on our feet to carry us and support us in activities so naturally, we need to take care and manage any potential issues in order to keep us moving and active.
"The area of orthotic management and biomechanics is a huge domain in which we as Podiatrists specialise in treating foot and ankle pain and discomfort linked to our movement and motion.
"We would often treat chronic and acute pain in the lower limbs caused by conditions such as arthritis and previous injuries or surgical interventions using orthotic therapy, with fantastic results.
"I have been honoured to treat some very high profile clients at Podomotion, including Olympians, GAA stars and recognised professional runners, to mention but a few.
"For me this is amazing as it reflects the good word of others promoting my business and hard work. I have been very lucky with the local support in the area helping my business grow from strength to strength and Podomotion has been involved as part of the Mayo Business awards for Best Business Start Up, which was a huge honour.
"It’s fantastic to have my business among some of the best in the county aiming to grow the Mayo business and economic sector as a whole.
"Clinically we offer a wide array of treatments. At Podomotion, our aim is to care for all patients, across all ages - individual foot and ankle care to keep you moving.
"We offer a complete service which covers: Full Foot/Leg Assement; Nail Care and Verrucae treatment' Orthotics/Insoles; Biomechanics/Gait Analysis Diabetic and Vascular advice and Acupuncture.
"For all the support I have received I am eternally grateful and I hope to continue to heal and keep the county moving one foot in front of the other!"
"Bria would be very happy to discuss all or any of your lower limb issues with you and offer treatment and advice where necessary.
