Cohen can keep an eye on your feet




Cohen is a regular listener to 101.9 ChaiFM. Some weeks ago the Morningside-based  podiatrist heard SA Jewish Report’s first sponsored feature on the station on their “Personalised Family Fitness Package” and called to ask how he could become involved.

Garyn & BeckhamHis was subsequently interviewed on Friday  November 20, which had a great impact, with listeners asking all sorts of questions. Garyn gave one lucky ChaiFM listener a free session and will be attending the event’s prize-giving on November 25 and answering lots of questions if his on-air inflow was anything to go by.

Garyn will also give away another free podiatry session at the Wednesday PRIZE-GIVING event in Rosebank.

Cohen qualified in podiatry and orthotics in 1996 and travelled around the US and Canada for a year before beginning his practice in 1997. His original practices were in Bezuidenhout Valley and Illovo.

A few years later he was offered a practice in the Morningside Clinic, which he took up.

He currently runs two practices:

  • One in the sports medicine in the Morningside Medi-Clinic where he also has an on-site orthotic laboratory; and
  • A satellite-practice in Manor Medical Centre in Gallo Manor.

Garyn’s special interests and areas of expertise include:

  • Sports injuries;
  • Podopaediatrics (children with Gait abnormalities); and
  • General podiatric care (corns, calluses and ingrown toenails)

“I was very privileged to have been given the opportunity to look after England as well as Bafana Bafana during the 2010 World Cup football tournament here,” says Garyn. Today, he assists football teams such as Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka Swallows. “I am very fortunate as I really enjoy what I do,” he says.
