Jayesh is a London based Podiatrist with many years of experience, working in the field of podiatry, biomechanics and gait analysis for over 15 years. He trained and first practised at University College London and The London Foot Hospital. Working at this prestigious centre of excellence provided Jayesh with invaluable exposure to complex sports and other musculoskeletal cases. After this he went on to pursue further training in the complex area of lower limb biomechanics, involving in-depth analysis of posture, walking, and running styles and relating the findings to how the joints and muscles function.
Having developed unique assessment methods Jayesh embarked on a new venture and set up FOOTSCOPE, of which he is the director and lead clinician, a company specialising in the assessment of lower limb biomechanics. The company now operates two fully equipped gait analysis labs, the second of which is on-site here at the Bowskill Clinic. In addition, Jayesh is involved with undergraduate teaching at the Centre for Clinical Education in Podiatry, University of East London.
His clients are of varying ages and and have a range activity backgrounds. Children suffering from conditions related to skeletal development, those partaking in amateur or professional sports, to people who have symptoms related to their everyday activities. Complaints can range from foot and ankle pain to issues higher up the body or kinetic chain.
Although Jayesh's expertise is complex foot mechanics, he can also use the advanced analysis tools to equate what is happening at the foot level to the rest of the body. Together with his colleagues at the Bowskill Clinic he has established an impressive multi-disciplinary approach to musculoskeletal complications. He finds that simply taking a quick video of someone on a treadmill or a screen shot of a client on pressure sensors does not lead to a meaningful diagnosis. Therefore, Jayesh uses his experience and expert knowledge to interpret what these results mean, allowing him to identify the primary cause of the symptoms and write a tailored and comprehensive report for each individual client, which ensures his approach remains patient centred.
The FOOTSCOPE gait and motion capture lab is on-site at The Bowskill Clinic. In addition to the high speed video and pressure analysis systems, Jayesh now has the most advanced 3D movement analysis equipment. Utilising an array of optical cameras he can objectively measure joint movement and interaction in a way that no other system can. It is considered the gold standard when analysing movement in all dimensions.
When indicated he will prescribe bespoke and functional orthotics/insoles. Normal insoles tend to simply cushion a foot and apply some bulk in the arch area. However the data gathered from a client's analysis will provide Jayesh with the information to prescribe a customised device to modify and improve foot function. This allows the muscles and joints to operate in a more desirable and natural manner, rather than forcing the foot to become almost dormant and reliant on the device. This in turn leads to a more comfortable return to activities.

I was referred to Mr Thakrar by my consultant for biomechanics and gait analysis of my foot with the view to insoles. It was amazing how he obtained the analysis of my feet, even taking into account my posture and how I walked. After a number of visits to get the temporary insoles correct, during that time he listened to everything I said and gave me advice of the type of footwear I would now have to wear. My new insoles have proved to be so comfortable and I know if I have any problems he is and the end of the phone. I would highly recommend Mr Thakrar for 'made to measure' insoles
I very detailed insight into my issue with plenty of care to work out the best treatment for me.
Fantastic experience from start to finish, very thorough in finding the problem and devising a solution
I highly recommend Jayesh for his knowledge and expertise in his field. He is so thorough in the assessment, every little detail is noted and checked. My insoles have helped me run pain-free and I am extremely thankful!!
Great to get orthotics that are personalised and allow me to walk and shop in comfort!
Mr Thakrar identified my issues and put a resolution path in place. Happy to say that my issues are issues no more!
I was referred to Jay for a Biomechanical assessment and gait analysis. My experience with Jay has been excellent. From my first appointment, he took time to explain all of the diagnostics tests he carried out and was patient with any questions I had. He explained the results of the assessment very clearly so it was easy to understand. He's extremely thorough and my appointments never felt rushed. I would highly recommend Jay to anyone seeking an MSK Podiatrist.
Very patient treating my elderly mum. Thank you
