Mr Kevin Bruce BSc(HONS) MSc

Kevin qualified as a Podiatrist in 2006 and has always been involved in a musculoskeletal caseload.

After completing his MSc in Clinical Podiatric Biomechanics he progressed to roles in the NHS as musculoskeletal lead clinician.

Gradually as his skills developed further he took on a greater caseload working in the private sector and as that continued to grow opted to leave the NHS completely due to the offer of a greater service to patients with greater availability and use of technology, time and materials.

He was not always set on a career in Podiatry, as he tried his luck at professional football but after being released by West Bromwich Albion at 19 years old had to find a new career path. The experiences gained whilst playing football led him toward Podiatry.

Despite football being the initial inspiration it is not only football and sports related pathology that his interest lies but also those in the general population whether sporting or otherwise. With a strong believe in that it is all about figuring out the mechanism of an injury related to that tissues stress and the basic principles apply similarly to a professional athlete or a weekend dog walker despite the actual treatments varying.

He also enjoys treating those who are suffering gait adaptations which are impacting on their every day lives whether due to a long term condition or recovering from recent acute pathology with the aim of restoring or improving gait functions.

To get the best for any patient it is often most beneficial if a multi team approach is employed to gain the results desired.
