In addition to his high level of podiatry skills, Daud is an Advanced Therapist, performing nail surgery, managing wounds, using diagnostics ultrasound and delivering steroid injection therapy.

Daud’s special interest in biomechanics and gait analysis (understanding why we experience pain or injury when we walk or run) is personal, as he competed at the very highest level for sport, trialling for the England football squad before injury forced a different direction. He 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.
