We have around 30 therapists here at Ashlins so it can be tricky to keep up with who’s who.

Today we’re getting to know Podiatrist Kibri a little bit better.

Q&A with Kibri Dei, Podiatrist

Name: Kibri Dei

What therapies do you offer?

 I’m Musculoskeletal Podiatrist and Posturologist with a special interest in treating patients with musculoskeletal problems related to abnormal gait and poor foot posture.

 

When and where did you train?

 I have a BSc in Podiatric Medicine from Florence University.  I qualified in 2009.

I went on to gain a PGDip in Lower limb pathomechanics in 2010 and MSc Posturology (Postural imbalance) in 2012, both from Barcelona University.

 

Why did you decide to become PODIATRIST/POSTUROLOGIST

 I always had an interest to understand how the human body works and adapts itself.  From this I decide to take the medical field to help patients with musculoskeletal issues.

Many musculoskeletal conditions respond very well through a full  gait analysis, biomechanical and postural assessment.  Based on this I  provide a custom supportive orthotics (insole) followed with appropriate strengthening and stretching exercises.

It is always a privilege to help improve someone’s quality of life, and that’s what I really love about my job.

 

 Describe your therapy in 10 words:

 Identify and treat problems associated with the feet and posture.

 

Tell us a joke:
