SIMON MILES

Podiatrist & Chiropodist

Simon is our resident sports podiatrist at MOVE CLINICS, dealing mostly with human movement, injury and orthotic management (custom made inserts for your shoes that assist in the treatment of lower limb problems).

His passion is in sports injuries of the legs, primarily dealing with muscular and joint pain from the hips to the feet, this is assessed through a combination of physical static and weight baring video analysis. Although the mainstay of his work is muscular and joint injury, he also manages anything from simple nail and skin complaints of the feet to more complex biomechanical issues that cause muscular and joint pain. Simon is experienced in the prescription of orthoses and has been fortunate to have prescribed these for a number of professional and international amateur athletes impacted by injury. Simon has worked with some of the GB Womens Hockey team in the build up to the London Olympics, as well as treating players from Leicester Tigers RFC, Derby County FC and Aston Villa Football Club.

As a keen sportsman most of his spare time is spent playing hockey, having played for nearly a decade in the English National League, the highest levels of hockey in the country. He has represented Wales in the European Club Championships in 2012, going one further in 2013 by winning gold. Having had his share of injuries, from a double Achilles rupture to a fractured knee cap amongst other problems, he can empathise with patients whose active lives have become impacted with injury.
