Languages:

Biography:

BSc (Hons) Pod Med., M.ChS HCPC Registered

Ralf  joined THE RICHARDS’ CENTRE TEAM in 2012 and combines his time with a successful clinic in Germany. With German technology at the forefront of innovative products in Chiropody and Podiatry, this provides THE RICHARDS CENTRE with an ideal opportunity to vet, select, and introduce those we consider to be beneficial to our patients. Ralf’s wide experience of alternative cultures and practice, together with his skills and qualifications in Acupuncture, Homoeopathy and Podiatry,  provides the best in both conventional and complementary medicine, giving a wider choice and a more effective treatment for his many patients. Ralf also provides our ‘Home Visiting Service’ providing routine footcare for patients in their own home. In THE RICHARDS’ CENTRE,  as well as routine foot care, Ralf offers Nail Surgery, for ingrown toenails and Bio mechanic assessments for both adults and children.

I like podiatry, because the job is very varied. In a typical clinic day, I may treat people with sports injuries, gait problems, I may do a surgery for ingrown toenails, treat patients with painful warts,  or simply look after people’s nails and hard skin. What I particularly enjoy is the contact with patients, and how often podiatric treatments can help people get rid of their discomfort and pain, or simply make their feet feel and look great.
