  • Musculoskeletal Podiatrist

Jayesh Thakrar has been working in the field of podiatry, biomechanics and gait analysis for over 15 years.

He trained and first practised at University College London and The London Foot Hospital. Working within this centre of excellence provided Jayesh with invaluable exposure to complex sports and other musculoskeletal cases. He then perused further training and interest in the field of lower limb biomechanics. This involves in-depth analysis of posture, walking, and running styles and relating the findings to how the joints and muscles function.

Having developed unique assessment methods Jayesh set up FOOTSCOPE, a company specialising in the investigation of lower limb biomechanics. Jayesh is also involved with undergraduate teaching at the Centre for Clinical Education in Podiatry, University of East London.

The FOOTSCOPE gait and motion capture lab is on-site at The Bowskill Clinic. In addition to the high speed video and pressure analysis systems, Jayesh now has the most advanced 3D movement analysis equipment. Utilising an array of optical cameras he can objectively measure joint movement and interaction in a way that no other system can. It is considered the gold standard when analysing movement in all dimensions.

His clients are of varying ages and have a range activity backgrounds. Together with his colleagues at the Bowskill Clinic he is establishing an impressive multi-disciplinary approach to musculoskeletal complications.
