Sporting events to sign up to

The team at South West Podiatry cannot help but highlight the events that our team of Podiatrists have signed up to this year. Our senior podiatrist Simon Adam has signed up to:

Heywards Heath Triathlon: http://www.hedgehogtri.co.uk/web/hedgehogtri/ardingly.html Apparently the cycle leg on this event is up and down all the way, So it might be time to do some more training around Richmond Park!

Tough Mudder: http://toughmudder.co.uk/ Simon has never done anything like this before. He has run the London Marathon and undertaken the London Triathlon many times but nothing like this before. The website says you will be electrocuted and have to climb in bins of ice which doesn’t sound very nice at all.

Cycling London to Paris: South West Podiatry is proud to support Simon (and a few of his friends) as they cycle from London to Paris to raise money for sick children. The event is a quadriceps burning 325 mile event which will require many laps of Richmond Park. Please feel free to sponsor Simon and his team at http://www.action.org.uk/action_london_paris

There are so many events in and around London for anyone to get involved with. From 500m charity runs all the way to the London Marathon. So many of our patients develop some injury which can easily be prevented or resolved allowing them to get back into training and finish the event they started. If you have a running injury or cycling injury please get in contact with us and we can help you back on the road.

Ps. If you see Simon running the roads of Wandsworth or Surrey please say hi.

South West Podiatry at the University of East London

Our Senior Podiatrist, Simon Adam, was recently invited as a guest lecturer to the University of East London to teach the students about knee, hip and lower back pain and how podiatry is able to treat these conditions. Podiatry is essential in the management of knee pains such as iliotibial band syndrome (ITB), anterior knee pain, patellofemoral joint syndrome and runner’s knee. Simon has spend years treating paints with knee and lower back pain using insoles, orthotics and the latest podiatry treatment modalities.

Our clinic in Earlsfield, Wandsworth is equipped with the latest podiatry treatment and diagnosistic investigations as well as working closely with the physiotherapy team of ProPhysiotehrapy. We regularly treat patients who have completed the London Marathon and have done a large proportion of their training around Wimbledon, Richmond Park, Tooting and as far out as Surrey.

To read more about our treatment options or our staff who perform these treatments please clinic on the links. We look forward to seeing you, and your feet, at South West Podiatry.
