Meet Doug James

Doug James is a qualified physiotherapist and podiatrist with special interest in running and sports injuries. He combines the two treatment approaches to achieve successful outcomes for clients of all abilities from non-athletes through to elite athletes.

Doug has undertaken further training in dry needling, Pilates, and Rocktape and may incorporate these as necessary during treatment.

In addition to treating sports injuries, Doug has experience in working with people who require (or have had) knee, hip, ankle or shoulder surgery. Doug is able to work with you to develop a rehabilitation plans for before (prehab) and after (rehab) joint surgery to get you back to your best as early as possible.

As a podiatrist, Doug is also able to assist with any skin and nail issues on your feet. Quick and (mostly) pain free solutions are available for corns, callous and black or ingrown toe nails.

With over a decade of experience working in the sports footwear industry, Doug recognises the benefit of a correctly prescribed shoe as a means of reducing injury risk.

Combining this knowledge with the great range of shoes from the intraining Running Centre enables a professional onsite fitting service to help you find the best shoe. When shoes aren’t able to solve all of your injury problems, Doug is able to custom make orthotic insoles for your shoes (health refunds available with the podiatry cover).

Doug is a keen runner and has competed in numerous marathons (including New York and Las Vegas) and several triathlon events.
