What it is

Podiatry is the diagnosis, treatment and management of foot and ankle related conditions. Podiatrists also study the movement of the body and how each joint can affect another, therefore, Podiatrists can treat and manage lower limb and upper limb conditions such as the knee, hip and lower back pains.

Podiatrists also have the ability also to prescribe medications and perform surgery if necessary.


Common Conditions

A Podiatrist can treat anything from a simple skin lesion to corrective foot surgery and anything in-between where the foot and ankle is concerned. Rob, our Podiatrist is also trained in specialist biomechanics, observing body mechanics and how the feet control the joints above them.


What to expect

You will first receive an assessment of your condition which may include a biomechanical assessment and video analysis of your gait and/or running style.  Rob will diagnose your condition and prescribe appropriate treatment which may include corrective techniques such as taping and provision of orthotics which Rob makes and provides through his own lab. Rob is also able to provide a full range of Chiropody services if required.

Other services that can support your treatment

Rob works as part of the multidisciplinary team at Courtyard and will liaise with our Physiotherapists and Chiropractors as well as Orthopaedic Surgeons to help treat common conditions such as knee, hip and lower back pain.

Rob Hill

Biomechanical Specialist and Clinical Podiatrist

Coming from a science and mechanical background I fell in love with medicine and its mechanical side while studying in Canada. Qualifying as a Biomechanical Musculorskeletal Podiatrist has taken me all over the United Kingdom, Ireland, USA and Canada to practice and lecture.

Here’s What Our Clients Think of Us

For Karla (Hypnotherapist)

“I was here on 3-day work experience. The first day I was nervous but there was a ‘family atmosphere’ where everyone was really welcoming and made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed every minute and would love to come again.” Charlie Edwards

For Vicky (Vim and Vigour)

“I am now nearing the end of my second course of Vim and Vigour sessions. I must say, along with thoroughly enjoying myself I have noticed an improvement in my balance, core strength and flexibility over this period. My thanks go to Vicky who has focused the activities towards my particular needs and has also raised my awareness of how to combat the ageing issues my body is facing. Thank you.” Karen McDonald

For Jo (Physiotherapy)

“I have to say that in all my years, working and coaching, and being treated myself, that was one of the finest pieces of work I’ve ever witnessed. My daughter is a very complex, head strong young lady. I am truly in awe of the way Jo took on the mental and physical challenges in a way she could accept. Very grateful for all you’ve done”         

 For Jo Roberts (Equipment Based Pilates)

“Over the last 2 years of rehab, I’ve done lots of different exercises, some extreme that have worked me hard. This is the only one that I’ve had to ask to stop mid-session to get a drink of water, that’s how hard it pushes you, do not underestimate this fantastic form of exercise.” Jerry Fowler
