Meet the team

Alison Mary Jones,

Podiatrist

Hi my name is Alison, I graduated from Cardiff School of Chiropody with a Diploma in Podiatric Medicine. I had set up a podiatry clinic there which still flourishes in the North of Cardiff. I am interested in biomechanics, nail surgery and laser therapy. I love meeting different people and helping them walk again pain free.

Scott Campbell,
Head Podiatrist

Hi, my name is Scott, I am originally from Northern Ireland. I am qualified with a degree in Podiatry and Medicine from Glasgow Caledonian University, I am a member of The Royal College of Podiatry and also The Health And Care Professionals Council.

My main podiatric interests are verruca needling, biomechanics and nail surgery. Enjoying the variety of patients and treatments that podiatry provides, I also find great satisfaction when a patient can come in to the clinic limping and leaving feeling like they are ‘walking on air.’

I am a firm believer in continuing and developing my knowledge and skill set, I qualified as an acupuncturist and also offer anti-wrinkle and anti-ageing treatments. My patients come first and no matter how big or small the issue, I am always here to help.


Lindsey Faulds,

Receptionist

Hi, I’m Lindsey and I am the receptionist at A Foot Ahead. I will welcome you when you arrive and am happy to assist you and answer any queries. I love meeting new people and working in a friendly environment.
When I am not at work, I like spending time with my family, going to fitness classes, eating out, movies and music.

Laser therapy

Medical therapeutic lasers are a safe, non-invasive and painless treatment for the reduction of pain, swelling and inflammation. Issues that can be helped with the use of the laser are muscle spasm and pain, arthritis, sprains and strains, back pain, hip pain, knee pain, sciatica, tendonitis, haematoma and oedema, sport injuries and many more.

Laser therapy works by passing electrical energy through an active material or diode, such as a crystal, in a tube.

This causes atoms to become energised and to release photons. The photons are then bounced around by mirrors and eventually exit as a laser beam via a slit in the tube.
