Iain Johnston

Area of expertise: Podiatric Biomechanics & Foot Related Conditions

Iain Johnston qualified as a podiatrist in 1989 with a Higher National Diploma at the Technikon Witswatersrand in Johnannesburg, South Africa.

He spent the next year in the army, doing national service, where he was thrust into treating the troops’ feet problems – a good confidence builder to start private practice in 1990 in Benoni. A year later Iain purchased a practice from a retiring chiropodist and introduced podiatry to the province of Natal. Focusing on podiatric or musculoskeletal podiatry as his main interest, Iain also gained experience in all aspects of foot treatment.

Durban is the home of the Comrades Marathon, which is a monstrous yearly event that involves running from Durban to Pietermaritzburg one year and back the next for the distance of 94km, or 56Miles. Treating these mad runners was a huge part of the practice and hence Iain gained a lot of experience in treating biomechanical problems in runners.

The practice attracted sportsmen and women and children involved in all sorts of sports, and Iain had the privilege of working in a multi-disciplinary environment, encompassing physiotherapy, biokinetics, chiropractic, sports physicians and orthopaedics.

Iain relocated to Reigate, Surrey in 2003, and has been able to provide all the experience and services that he  learned in South Africa and more. Iain attends regular meetings and conferences, keeping up to date on continuing professional development, and always seeks to embrace new treatments that resonate with Iain philosophy in treating feet.

Iain has advanced his treatment techniques to encompass Manual Therapies including Soft Tissue Stimulation, Ankle and forefoot Mobilizations’, Foot manipulation, Kinesio taping, Compex Neuro- Muscular Stimulation, as part of a therapeutic approach. Insole and orthotic therapy round off a complete approach.
