No good ones in Cambridge. I live here, useless for anything like that. I went to Montagu Clinic in London.
Peter Norman set me up with a good pair. Been running in them for 6 months now, very impressed, watches you walk, your gait etc.

Only have experience of one but he was brilliant. He gets recommended by a whole host of physios in West Midlands area. Paul Swiercz on 01384 396777.

There is a bit of a waiting list but that only confirms his reputation.

I was recommended David Goyette 07958 917735 by my Physio.

David is a sports-specific podiatrist with good knowledge of sporting injuries - he works at the Oakfield Sports Injury and Rehabiliation Clinic in Chafford Hundred / Grays in Essex, and also in more swanky premises 'The Third Space' in Picadilly Circus. By taking the Essex option you can see him for just half the price of his inner London clinic.

He was clear in his explanation and took the time to explain all the details to me, asking often if I had any questions.

Thanks to him I was able to put in the temporary insoles he made me (there and then) and run the next day after not being able to run for a week.

He DID NOT make me expensive insoles as he said there is no good paying out huge amounts for something when you don' t know if its going to help or not... other words - HE'S NOT ALL ABOUT MONEY! Thats got to be good.

Yes - that's him. To get to the clinic you go through a chemist shop (Crystal, I think) and up the stairs at the back.

Anyone good in North/Central London?
Maybe who knows about biomechanics too?

I went to see D.Nicholls at Fitter_Feet in Clapham. Excellent service although a tad expensive (but isnt this always the case). The quality of orthotics are excellent, but you have to wait as they manufacture them in the Satates.

Cheers. How much is 'expensive'?

I've been to profeet after I had problems with my ITBs - had the gait analysis etc and got orthotics and new trainers.

About two months later I have a new problem in my right foot on the top - 2nd 3rd toe. Had an xray - found nothing.

Maybe it's just me, but I suspect there is a link between the orthotics and my new injury ?
