My name is Alan Cawthorne and I’m a HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) registered Podiatrist and a member of the ‘Royal College of Podiatry’. Many people take their feet for granted until they experience a problem. Foot problems can be extremely painful and impact on your mobility or sometimes be very unsightly. So whether you are experiencing common foot problems such as ingrowing toe nails, heel pain, foot pain, corns, verrucas, hard skin, fungal nails or athlete's foot. Or if you just need routine nail care or diabetes checks, all of these can be treated here at Footman Podiatry and Gait Analysis Clinics. Other problems can be more specialised such as leg, ankle or foot pain, either when taking part in physical activities such as running, cycling, gymnastics and martial arts, or sometimes just when generally walking around. Again, Footman Podiatry and Gait Analysis Clinics has the experience and expertise to establish the problem and provide the appropriate resolution for your needs. Podiatrists are the 'Lower Limb Specialists'! We are to legs and feet, as dentists are to teeth!

I’ve been a practicing Podiatrist and Gait Analysis Specialist since September 2012 running private clinics in Middlesbrough and Helmsley. I previously worked for both the NHS and the MOD as a Musculo-Skeletal Podiatry specialist, helping people with leg, knee, ankle, foot and lower back pain. Here at Footman Podiatry and Gait Analysis Clinics we pride ourselves on delivering high quality podiatry / chiropody services and specialist solutions in the treatment of foot and ankle problems to the people of Teesside and North Yorkshire. With the utmost professionalism, a standard of excellence in knowledge, and over 11 years of clinical experience. The goal of Footman Podiatry and Gait Analysis Clinics based in Middlesbrough, and Helmsley is to help patients maintain healthy feet and improve their overall quality of life. As a HCPC registered Podiatrist, its my job to Put Your Feet In Safe Hands!
