Excellent treatment and a great cup of coffee, too! Zoe offered a range of exercises alongside treatment that has dramatically reduced the pain I was experiencing in my heel from a running-related injury. I'd highly recommend the friendly, welcoming and supportive treatment offered at the Kirkby Lonsdale clinic. Many thanks!

I discovered Zoe on a visit to Kendal and I decided to book an appointment for an assessment. It was the best thing I ever done. Zoe listened. The assessment was excellent; I have always had lower back pain, as a result of one leg being shorter than the other. My gait was analyzed and Zoe suggested orthotics. Moulds were made of both feet. When they arrived they were properly fitted by Zoe. What a difference they have made! Lower back pain is not there. She has also been able to help with the pain I have in my big toe. I have been back for reviews and the same care and service has taken place. I live in Sheffield and it is definitely worth the journey to Kendal. Zoe is passionate about what she does and is extremely knowledgeable. Her service is second to none. I have since ordered a second set of orthotics to put in other footwear.
Very professional service from start to finish and- crucially, after 5 visits Zoe successfully cured my very painful plantar fasciitis. I am back running after only 4 weeks treatment-yay!! Zoe quickly diagnosed my problem using ultrasound and then provided me with an exercise programme to do at home ( e mailed to me with videos of each exercise). I then had 4,sessions of shock wave therapy which definitely paid off. I wanted the best and needed to get back on my feet quickly so was prepared to pay. The team at ZWF&A are super friendly and caring too. Thankyou!

Cannot recommend Zoe and her friendly team at ZW foot and ankle enough. I have hyper mobility so have always had a lot of pain in my feet, especially working in hospitality standing up constantly. Prices are so reasonable considering this is a specialist service! Thank you Zoe! Can’t wait to return and continue my treatment.
Zoe and her team are very professional and efficient and above all friendly and easy to chat with to discuss lower limb problems. Zoe explains her diagnosis very clearly I would definitely recommend

I have used these angels on a couple of occasions now and they are amazing! Thank you Zoe, Lucy, Jude & Vikki - Professional and precise they have managed to treat my feet and it really is miraculous. I don’t know how they do it because what seems like a big problem to me they sort out with ease! I can’t recommend Z.W Foot & Ankle highly enough, they can deal with anything!
Mark Butterworth
Without doubt, the best podiatrist in the country. Zoe was excellent and managed to fix my feet that I had been suffering with for a decade. After four wasted trips to other local podiatrists that proved a usless waist of money, she expertly diagnosed and looked after me. I could not recommend highly enough Zoe and her team.
Pete Mitchel
Zoe is absolutely amazing! She was recommended to me following many years of foot pain during cycling and even though she is a 6hr round trip away she managed to help me resolve my issues with only a couple of visits, some flexibility exercises and some very well made custom cycling insoles. I’ve just completed a 3hr ride with 1700m of climbing and had zero pain or hotspots afterwards. Genuinely can’t put into words how much of a positive difference Zoe has made to my cycling!! Thoroughly recommended!!
Aled Williams
From start to finish the service has been outstanding and Zoe knowledge about cycling too and understanding about it helped resolve my issue within weeks. Thanks again to all the staff at ZW
Kevin Murphy
I have been a patient of Zoe since August 2019 after injuring my right foot in a traffic accident. Zoe and Estelle have been very professional and friendly and have put themselves out to suit my busy lifestyle. I have been doing stretching exercises and now have a set of bespoke orthotics which I wear in my shoes and have been made to suit my feet On her advice I often wear Hoka trainers which are so comfortable and I am now half way through a treatment of 6 shockwave therapy sessions. The difference in pain levels since I started being seen by Zoe is amazing; down from a level of about 8 out ten to about a 2 out of ten. I would strongly recommend Zoe's services, she is very professional and I thank her for her advice and guidance.
