I have specialised in sports podiatry since completing my masters degree 20 years ago and as a runner myself I understand how important it is for injuries to be diagnosed appropriately and treated quickly. It is really important that any orthoses prescribed are suitable for the sport and comfortable to wear.
I have ran regularly for over 15 years and regularly raced at 10k and half marathon distance and have completed 5 marathons (New York, London , Chicago, Berlin and Boston) as well as one ultra marathon.
I now just have Tokyo left to do to complete the 6 majors.

I am a runner myself and in the past have raced at 10k, half marathon and marathon. I have completed one ultra marathon. I was due to do the Berlin marathon in 2020 until it was cancelled due to covid but hopefully I will complete this in 2021.
I am interested in all sports; football, rugby, hockey, athletics, golf, tennis and have treated patients from all backgrounds in my clinics.
