I was struggling with my flat feet in ice skates but thanks to Dee I now have some custom orthotics which feel so comfortable. I can wear them in both my trainers and ice skates which is great. Really impressed with how thorough Dee was in diagnosing the problem and recommendations along with custom orthotics. Friendly and professional service. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.Mr A T – LeedsGoogle reviewSept 2020
Well where do I start! I met Dee from The Foot & Lower Limb Clinic probably 3 years ago now. I had a serious accident 2 years before that where I damaged my ankle so badly I had to have many hours of operations to save it. I then hit a plateau in my recovery and could manage 2000 steps a day and then be in pain for a couple of days. After I met Dee, and followed a course of treatment and therapies, I can now walk 20000 steps a day, every day. Dee has literally changed my life and without hesitation I would recommend her and her Clinic and if I could rate higher than 5 stars, the sky would be the limit. Give her a call

After having heel and Achilles issues from running for over 3 years I thought my days of half marathon running was over due. A work colleague recommended Dee after having seen her for his running issues. I was skeptical about seeing a podiatrist to begin with after having seen sports therapists in the past with no success. The initial assessment picked up on small details that I didn’t even mention, at that point I realised Dee has a keen eye and knows her stuff. So we embarked on a series of a shockwave treatments (which again I was very skeptical about!), and placed a 4 month running ban on me (which hurt the most!!). However after the treatments have now finished I have since run 2 half marathons with none of the issues the following day, since the treatment I have been able to walk the day after with no KT tape, or limping. Can 100% recommend the shockwave treatment, and seeing Dee!!
