Ian has experience with a vast range of patients from the recreational runner completing their first marathon right through to professional international footballers and golfers. He has obtained a postgraduate certificate in Sports Podiatry, and has also completed his Masters degree in Sports Injury at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he was awarded a distinction for his research into supination resistance.
His main interests lie within the fields of gait analysis, biomechanically induced tissue stress, and the application of engineering principles to human structures. He firmly believes in an interdisciplinary approach to injury management, having worked very closely alongside Sports Physiotherapists since 2006.
Ian was a member of the official medical team for the Adidas Half Marathon at Silverstone Grand Prix track from 2006 to 2008 and was also based inside the athlete's village as part of the medical team at the London 2012 Olympic Games. He has appeared on BBC London News as an in-studio expert.
