As well as helping a number of children with their foot health issues (which prompted a blog), I have been asked to give various talks and presentations including talks about the techniques and ethos underlying my pain management clinic as well as sharing my specialist knowledge in cancer related issues – for example foot problems during chemotherapy.  If you have a group that would be interested in a presentation then please get in touch.

I have also written a series of award-winning articles for podiatrists to share my expertise in relation to treatments for cancer patients.

In the talks section you will find a short video: ‘How pregnancy can affect your foot health‘.  This covers five key areas:

  • ingrown toenails
  • hard skin and corns
  • fungal infections including athlete’s foot
  • plantar fasciitis
  • basic toe and ankle injuries

All of these can be problematic during pregnancy due to the various changes that are taking place in the body.  We quite often find patients who have never seen a podiatrist before needing a little extra help during this time.
