The Sports Podiatrist and the Passion.
Mougnir’s passion in podiatry started at a very early age. At 16, when he was training as an elite fencer, he sprained his ankle and was referred to the only French sport podiatrist there was at that time. He was so passionate about his work, it led him to achieve his vocation and passion by combining both sport and podiatry.
In his early years of studies in podiatry and as a keen water-skier, he designed and manufactured some specific orthotics, and became a consultant to members of the French water-skiing team. After his graduation in 1998, he went to Orlando (Florida) to continue his research and development in orthotics.
Mougnir’s passion led him to travel all around the world as a podiatrist and develop a strong feeling of empathy towards his patients. In 2004, he set up and launched Medi-Xtrem, which provides medical assistance for sport elite events.
In 2005 he became a Lecturer in Sport Podiatry at the University of Medicine Paris 13. He is also well known as a podiatry consultant on the French TV5 health channel show (Le Magazine de la Santé) and Elle, Triathlete and Running magazines.
Still a keen sportsman, he trains in triathlons, regularly goes surfing, and is an elite fencing coach at Escrime Academy in London. (He qualified as a Fencing Instructor in 1992, with 20 years of practice.)
