Gavin Fane, Podiatrist

Daud Abdirahman, Podiatrist & Biomechanics

Daud joins Leigham Practice having gained a wealth of experience as Senior Podiatrist at Guy’s and St Thomas’s performing nail surgery, wound management and maintaining a high level of general podiatry skills. Daud’s journey to specialise in biomechanics (understanding why we experience pain or injury when we walk or run) is a personal one, as he competed at the very highest level for sport. Having trialled for England and signed for QPR under 21’s and Reading FC, a serious back injury forced him to take 2 years from competition and the biomechanics specialist who helped him walk again suggested Daud should consider this. Daud uses his skills, knowledge and lifetime of experience with pain, injuries, training, conditioning and psychology to help anyone who has issues to get the best possible outcomes rapidly and effectively.
