Member of the Royal College of Podiatry

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, ankle and lower limb. As a practitioner I work closely with my patients to deliver the very best treatment for them using an evidence-based approach.

My main work is in the field of podiatric biomechanics, running injuries and sports & musculoskeletal podiatry with a particular focus on heel and Achilles tendon pain. We also run a specialist shockwave treatment service as an evidence-based and effective adjunct to help with such injuries.

My qualifications include a post graduate certificate in Musculoskeletal Conditions of The Foot & Ankle specialising in heel pain, whilst recent courses have included Strength & Conditioning with Dr Claire Minshull, a highly respected UK based Strength and Conditioning coach, Athlete Load Management with world renowned Sports Scientist Dr Tim Gabett, a year long course specialising in Running Injuries, and subsequent in-depth courses in Advanced Gait and Running Analysis as well as Gait Re-training. I am currently enrolled on a FIFA approved Diploma in Football Medicine.

Alongside my private practice work I have experience working in multiple NHS clinics and hospitals. Currently, this involves being part of a wonderful team of Physiotherapists and Podiatrists working from a multi-disciplinary clinic in Cheltenham and part of a great team of highly motivated Osteopaths, Sports Injury Therapists and orthopaedic consultants in Coventry, Warwickshire.

I am the owner of RS Podiatry Clinic in Coventry. where we see many patients from the local running clubs including from Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Warwick and Stratford.

We are members of Gait & Motion Clinics ( and we use the latest pressure and force mapping technology to analyse foot function in great detail ( If required we combine this analysis with the latest in 3D-printed Phits Orthotics (as worn by elite athlete’s and sports professionals). We are the first clinic in Warwickshire to offer this type of orthotic and see it as our speciality.

Using the latest technology allows us to understand the problem better. It engages our patients with their findings. As a result we believe this provides a strong basis for a successful patient outcome.

If you are a motivated individual looking for a podiatry clinic, willing to engage with a tailored treatment plan, after a highly professional and forward thinking practice, then RS Podiatry Clinic is for you!
