About me

James graduated in 2001 with his BSc(Hons) Podiatry degree from University College London (UCL), and since then has worked in both the private sector and the NHS where he currently holds the post of Advanced Specialist Podiatrist in Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Gait Analysis. In 2004, he set up Ablefeet Ltd providing premium podiatry care for all, with his main area of interest in biomechanics, minor surgery and paediatrics. Since setting up the practice his wide-ranging sports expertise has allowed him to treat Premier League Rugby players; England and Wales National Lacrosse Players, Great Britain, England and Scotland hockey players; elite marathon runners, Ironman and Lanzarote Triathletes, Marathon des Sables (Sahara marathon) runners, mountaineers as well as members of the British Armed Forces. He has lectured nationally, as well as providing teaching to many podiatrists and physiotherapists in an NHS capacity.

James continues to challenge himself by maintaining the highest level of continued professional development by regularly attending courses, reading journal articles and contributing to on-line debates. This allows him to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the podiatry world and transfer this on to his own clinical practice. In 2018 he completed his MSc in Principles of Podiatric Surgery.
