Welcome to our new podiatry practice Laufgsund. We look forward to briefly explaining who we are and how we can help you.

We at Podiatry Laufgsund are specialists in the field of complaints regarding the back and lower extremities. Our goal is to help as many people as possible to stand, walk and exercise in a comfortable way. In order to work as effectively as possible here, we use functional movement tests to get an idea of the symptoms. In addition, we carry out a gait analysis to correct the gait pattern if necessary.

My name is Lisa Petersen and I come from the Netherlands. There I studied podiatry at the Saxion University in Enschede (NL) and got a bachelor's degree. I've been working in Switzerland since the beginning of 2018 and initially worked in orthopedic technology for two and a half years. I am very much looking forward to bringing the profession of podiatry to Switzerland. Hopefully we'll see you soon at one of our locations, in the Zwicky Areal Dübendorf (on the border with Wallisellen), or in Zurich, in Wiedikon or in Höngg!


We like to write about our job and everything related to it. Check out the blogs below!

Hiking time

May 21, 2021

The weekend of Pentecost is just around the corner; we have the next three days off, what about you? We put on our hiking shoes and will go for a walk! Enjoying fresh air, your face in the sun (hopefully) and the beautiful nature of Switzerland. This not only makes us happier but also healthier. But what if you suddenly encounter pain while walking?
