Andrew James
Consultant Podiatrist

BSc (Hons) MChS HCPCreg

Having qualified in 1994 I worked in the NHS for 7 years including 2 years as Head of Orthotic Services in North Glamorgan NHS Trust. In 2001 I decided to work exclusively in the private sector with a focus on elite sport. In the last 15 years I have worked closely with many elite sports organisations/companies including The WRU, ECB, Puma and a number of Premier League Football Clubs. I have been a consultant Podiatrist to the Emirates Airline based in Dubai for the last 3 years.

Whilst I specialise in sports injuries, I can assess and advise on the full spectrum of lower limb injuries/pathology. I have special interests in, assessing the dynamic foot, orthotic therapy, paediatrics, toe nail surgery under local anaesthesia and sports injuries.

Whilst I now practice exclusively from Spire Cardiff Hospital, I retain my responsibility for a number of premier league football clubs, professional rugby clubs and enjoy the innovative work with the Emirates Airline in Dubai.

In addition to my clinical work I am proud to be a visiting lecturer at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

 

 

 

Regular treatments at The Physiotherapy Clinic are the best money I spend. Tracey immediately spotted things a dozen previous physios had missed for years and soon I hardly needed my walking stick any more. Likewise with my M.E. - Doctors couldn't help, and whilst I was skeptical of acupuncture at first, I can't argue with the results. There's no cure for M.E. yet, but Tracey's professional, empirical approach has kept me fit to work for over ten years.

Thank you for the excellent treatment I have received since becoming a patient in your clinic. You quickly spotted the problem with my feet and recommended a course of action which I am very pleased to say has seen a major relief of discomfort in my feet and legs.

Christine has provided me with a very successful series of treatments for a chronic back complaint plus the aftermath of a torn Achilles tendon. She communicates in a serious yet friendly manner giving first class advice. I cant recommend her highly enough.
MARK HARRINGTON, CEO, CRISTAL INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS
When it comes to physiotherapists there are plenty of choices that provide a good service , but Chrissy provides an excellent service. She has enabled my body to be fit and healthy to ensure I can play and compete my golf at international level. Chrissy has given my body the health and confidence to push and achieve my goals. Chrissy has been my physiotherapist for 5 years and always works with you to understand the required treatment for the injury but also links it to your state of mind and life choices.

I walked into Chrissy's clinic, I say walked I mean limped, with crutches and a pillow. After just one session I walked out unaided, no crutches and feeling so much more confident. I'm not an average case but Chrissy worked with me tirelessly to improve my physical and emotional well being. She provides the highest professional care, you never feel like a number, her service is very personal. Her knowledge and bedside manner are second to none and I would never trust anyone else with my care.

My husband came for a treatment for back pain this weekend, he said it was excellent, a really thorough history was taken and Chrissy seemed genuinely interested. It was a very comprehensive treatment and he went as far as to say it was one of the best consultations he has ever had. Many thanks

Had a massage from Christine while suffering back pain and sciatica pain while pregnant. She really did (and does) work wonders! I felt amazing afterwards!! Highly recommend as the best physiotherapist around.

Chrissy is amazing best physio I've seen and I've seen a few, Chrissy helped me before and after surgery and when I went abroad she was messaging me seeing how my knee was and giving me tips and exercises to do! She's amazing and helped me loads.
