I would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan to any one in similar circumstances.
I have no idea where I would be if I hadn’t seen Mr Stanley other than in hell of a lot of pain. I fully recommend him for anyone who is looking for a podiatrist.

“Very inspirational man, so caring and clever in his chosen field. His confidence and years of experience really put you at ease.
He has made a great difference to my husband’s gait and he can now walk without a stick and no longer stoops. A pleasure to meet him and watch a specialist at work.”
At the initial consultation with Jonathan, he spent some time analysing my gait and posture and after a diagnosis suggested that I should have some orthotic insoles made. Jonathan made casts from my feet and very shortly my new orthotics arrived. I was given clear and helpful instruction as to how to wear them in and my ankle problems began to improve very quickly.
Now four months later I am as good as new and visit Jonathan every few months for a short progress session to make sure all is well.
Jonathan is friendly, professional and explains the causes and diagnosis of your problem in a clear and easy to understand way. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to him
He agreed and explained, very clearly, where the problem was coming from and what we could do to stop it. He demonstrated that the knee pain was coming from my foot position but showing me some pressure points and how painful they were, then he moved my feet to the correct position and there was no pain when those points were palpated.
So we made some orthotics. I am now running pain free and and don’t worry about my knees when I run at all.
It’s fantastic what a simple change can make to me.
Thanks Jonathon for your help.
I highly recommend Jonathon and hope you do go to see him. He will help.
I had a burning sensation between my third and forth toe in the ball of my foot plus a numbness of the toes.
Jonathan knew straight away by my description exactly what the problem was. I had a Neuroma caused by inflammation of nerves around my 3rd and 4th toes.
He realigned my foot and ankle, which was painless, and then took plaster casts of both feet. I had Orthotics made and Jonathan took time to explain how to use them correctly. Within a few weeks my foot has no pain, no numbness and I can walk, run and exercise with ease.
Jonathan is a professional who explains clearly his diagnosis and provides treatments that work!
I can certainly recommend Jonathan without reservation.
“As a patient at The Foot Pain Centres of Leeds, I am only too happy to endorse the Centres and the excellent work they do. It is so refreshing to see so many dedicated specialists working together providing such a comprehensive service in Yorkshire and a proven positive step in providing much needed treatment and care to all.”

“Some years ago whilst I was looking for a clinic specialising in lower limb injuries to assess a young client who had been told by NHS doctors she would be left with permanent restriction of movement and pain to her foot following an accident I found The Foot Pain Centres of Leeds. I referred this client who was assessed treated and has made a full recovery. Since then I have referred a number of clients for treatment as they are one of the few clinics to specialise in lower limb injuries, I was so impressed with the results experienced by my clients I referred myself for treatment.
I have, since an early age, been diagnosed as suffering from ankylosing spondylitis causing repeated episodes of back pain.Over a period of 10 years or more I had also suffered from significant ankle and knee pain which during that time had resulted in two sets of surgery to the knees.
Upon my attendance at the clinic I was jointly assessed by Jonathan Stanley, Podiatrist and by resident Chiropractor Dr Tomer Gilboa. After a thorough history and examination it was determined that in fact I suffered from a congenital problem with my ankles whereby ligaments were misplaced causing restriction in movement which I was advised had no doubt impacted upon my knees, hips and back.
Jonathan carried out a simple chiropractic procedure to re-set the position of the ligaments in my ankles which significantly increased their range of movement to my genuine astonishment. I was also advised that it would be appropriate to use orthotics (which is a type of specially shaped insole that is placed in the wearer’s shoes). Jonathan made casts of my feet with plaster of paris so that extremely comfortable bespoke orthotics could be manufactured. A great deal of measurement and calculation was made by Jonathan so that the orthotics would work in such way as to properly straighten my legs and thereby reduce the stress on all the joints above my ankles.
I was advised that having experienced a lifetime of limited movement in the ankles and associated misalignment of the legs was no doubt responsible for increased wear and tear on my knees and hips and back. I was advised that with an appropriate course of rehabilitation provided by Dr Tomer Gilboa I had every prospect of reducing the very significant levels of pain I was suffering in my knees, hips and back. After a couple of weeks I received my orthotics and for the first time in my life felt as though my feet were properly planted on the ground and I noticed an immediate improvement in my general posture. I underwent a course of treatment with Tomer Gilboa and very quickly found that the levels of pain I was suffering in my knees, hips and back reduced. Within weeks I was able to virtually eliminate the daily painkillers which I had been taking for years and within months had a much improved posture leading to vastly reduced levels of pain and very much increased levels of activity.
I believe the considerable damage by way of wear and tear to my knees and back would have been substantially reduced had I been diagnosed much earlier with the problems that were identified and treated by Jonathan and Tomer. I now suffer only occasional relapses of pain in my back and knees which receive further ministrations by Tomer with considerable benefit.
I am very pleased I can say that with the benefit of diagnosis and treatment my levels of pain have significantly reduced, my levels of activity have increased and they have made a considerable difference to the quality of my day to day life.”

“I have attended the clinic since 2007 and have benefitted enormously from the specialists’ combined years of experience, expertise and dedication to detail. In particular, Chiropractor Dr Tomer Gilboa and Podiatrist Mr Jonathan Stanley are extremely professional.
My recommendation is not just about the medical staff. All the personnel are helpful and the welcome is always warm, sincere and reassuring.
I have no hesitation in endorsing the clinic.”

“With sports people, orthotics can help correct your gait. The insoles have effectively and painlessly altered the way I bear weight through my foot, which, in turn, relieved the pressure on my affected knee. Using the orthotics has made a huge difference to me.”
Alex Johnson, Professional Tennis Player, Leeds 2015
“We have both had problems that have affected our walking – him Achilles and me shin-splints. Thanks to our brilliant Podiatrist Jonathan Stanley and his custom-made Orthotic supports, Andrew is getting much better. Our holiday was a good test and has shown just how much better he is! I can’t wait to get mine fitted.”
