Ayres Podiatry is committed to providing a professional podiatry service that is able to diagnose and treat conditions of the foot and resolve lower limb sports injuries. This is achieved by placing a strong emphasis on customer service and providing treatments that address the root cause of a problem and suit clients needs.
I gained a BSc (hons) in Health and Sport Studies from Huddersfield University in 2003 and subsequently worked in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and fitness instructor. During this time I worked with clients referred to the gym from medical practitioners.
In 2007 I was looking for a new challenge so I decided to train as a Podiatrist and soon graduated from the University of Salford with a 2:1 BSc (hons) degree in podiatry. Due to my previous studies, work in the fitness industry and fell running background I developed a passion for podiatric biomechanics and sports injuries. As a result I attended training courses outside of the usual university study including the RX Biomechanics Summer School.
Away from podiatry I enjoy mountaineering and fell running where I have completed ultra distance trail races, 17 multiday mountain marathons and taken part in expeditions to Arctic Norway, Corsica, Pyrenees and the Alps. If I’m not at home I can usually be found with my wife Anna camping in a tiny tent somewhere in Snowdonia or Lake District.
