Hi, my name is Ricky and welcome to my website for RS Podiatry Clinic.

Being a Podiatrist I see a variety of problems related to the foot and lower limb and as a practitioner my aim is to work closely with patients to do the very best for them using an evidence-based approach.

I qualified from the University of Huddersfield with a Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Podiatry and subsequently went on to complete a Post Graduate Certificate in Musculoskeletal Conditions of The Foot & Ankle, specialising in heel pain.

Since then I then I’ve continued studying and maintaining CPD. My main interests are in biomechanics and sports & musculoskeletal podiatry. I have undertaken a range of courses to enable me to see patient’s who fall into these categories. One of the more recent courses was in Strength & Conditioning with Dr Claire Minshull, a well-respected UK based Strength and Conditioning coach. I’ve tied this with a developing interest in running and have completed a year long course in Running Injuries with subsequent courses in Gait Analysis and Running Gait Analysis.

In 2020 I completed a course in Load Management by renowned Sports Scientist Dr Tim Gabett. This was fantastic and has enabled me to have a better overall understanding of a patient/athlete’s training programme and how to ‘load manage’ and adapt this to create an effective rehabilitation plan.

My experiences include working in multiple NHS clinics and hospitals as well as the Private sector. This has covered routine podiatry and chiropody, msk work and nail surgery. Currently, I work with a team of experienced Physiotherapists and Podiatrists in Cheltenham, and with a great team of motivated Osteopaths and Sports Injury Therapists in Coventry, Warwickshire. I also have my own clinic in Coventry (formerly Bannerbrook Podiatry) which covers all aspects of Podiatry with a particular focus on nail surgery, sports injuries, biomechanics, running analysis and specialist orthotics. To better understand some of the possible underlying causes of injury, we recently invested in the latest force plate technology, the RS Footscan (https://rsscan.com/). Our patients find this extremely helpful and engaging as we look to understand potential underlying causes of a problem a little deeper.

My work takes into consideration a bio-psycho-social approach as I believe this can be an important component of the overall treatment plan.

Outside of work I’m pretty active, enjoying running, badminton, football, and gym work. Other than this I’m usually stuck into a research paper or listening to various medical podcasts on my commutes!

So, if you’re a motivated individual, willing to engage with a tailored treatment plan, after a highly professional yet easy-going service, then RS Podiatry is for you, so give us a call!
