Gina Bhagwat-Brown

I trained with the SMAE Institute, which is dedicated to the training of Podiatric medicine (Chiropody and Podiatry are one of the same thing).I qualified in 1994 and set up a practice in Milton Keynes where I remained until August 2005.

After working for a year in the Middle East I have returned to the UK to work at the Wells Road Practice.

Tom graduated from the Cardiff School of Podiatry and has since quickly established himself as the Clinical Lead Podiatrist and Head of Services at ACE Feet in Motion.

ACE – Feet in Motion was established in 2001 to provide sports injury services using computerised foot pressure plate scanning equipment. The use of such scanners allow Tom to analyse the biomechanics of the foot whilst in motion and identify any irregularities in foot function. Such irregularities may give rise to various common injuries such as shin splints, foot, ankle, knee or hip pain. All types of corrective insoles are manufactured at our Cardifffacility, where they have state of the art CAD CAMequipment for fast effective production.

Ace – Feet in Motion are the official Podiatrists to the Welsh Rugby Union, Cardiff City F.C. and the Federation of Disability Sports Wales. ACE have also worked with many other teams in a variety of different sports from Elite Athletes in Sports Wales to professional footballers at Everton FC.
