“I am Dr Susie Cooper MBBS, MRCP, MRCGP, BSc(hons), PgDip (SEM). GP and Rheumatologist with a post graduate Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine, I’m also a 51 year old long distance runner that completely ruptured my plantar fascia in the left foot a couple of years ago.

“I was told by an orthopaedic foot surgeon that I should ‘change my sport’, but after 6 months of no running I slowly got back to it. However, it wasn’t until I tried the Barefoot Science insole system one year later that I started to be able to run better and pain free.”

NHS… are you ready?

“As a medical practitioner, I would like to see more of this system tested in the NHS, and where appropriate, used by musculoskeletal and orthopaedic doctors and physiotherapists. I think Barefoot Science insoles have a role to play in injury recovery, sports performance, and for improving balance and mobility in all age groups. The system certainly gave me more benefit than my expensive ‘custom made’ orthotics a few years before!”
