Shaftesbury Podiatry & Osteopathy Clinic

Hi, welcome to my website. You are most likely here because you are looking for treatment and advise to help with some kind of ailment that is affecting your body. Hopefully the information contained within this website will answer any questions you may have about whether I can help you.

Having a sore foot or a bad back can make life pretty miserable and my main aim is to brighten your day through the unique treatment service that I provide in my practice. Whist I certainly do not work miracles, it is always very satisfying to be able to help with the wide range of conditions that people present with in clinic.

Having spent many years training as an osteopath and a podiatrist, I am able to offer a comprehensive package of care that includes expertise in treating the lower limb and foot as well as the body as a whole. I often find that I use both of my skills to help patients with a broad spectrum of problems. For example, many people who are suffering from back pain will compensate and change the way that they walk, which may lead to problems with the foot and vice versa.

So whether it is general chiropody treatment to remove a painful corn or you require help with a stubborn verruca, or a painful neck or shoulder, I can assist in finding a solution to whatever issue you may have.

If you would like to find out more about how I  can help you, please phone me on my mobile number and leave a message and I will get back to you ASAP. Alternatively you can email me at:

There is also an easy online booking system, so that you can book appointments at your convenience. Scroll down the page to find the bookings link.

Miles Cowan (Registered Podiatrist & Osteopath)

Bsc (Hons) Pod, MChS, Bsc (Hons) Ost, Dip FTST

My clinic is located on the outskirts of Shaftesbury on the Wincombe Business Park. I treat people of all ages and stages of life, mainly from around Gillingham, Shaftesbury and the surrounding areas of North Dorset and the Wiltshire border.

My clinic provides a comprehensive range of services, including chiropody, podiatry and osteopathy treatments. I am a dual qualified podiatrist and osteopath and I have an extensive experience working in private practice and in the National Health Service.

There is a professional chiropody surgery in the practice, with all the latest technology. I carry out routine foot care such as nail cutting, corn and callus removal. Painful ingrowing toenails can be treated using minor surgical procedures with local anaesthesia. I use low level lasers to speed up healing of acute injuries and to trigger an immune response, which can help to get rid of verrucae’s and to heal some skin conditions.

I also provide biomechanical analysis and orthotic therapy to help people with mobility issues. I see many patients with plantar heel pain and have expert diagnostic skills to find the underlying cause of this problem. Plantar fasciitus can be resolved by using shockwave therapy and manual therapy.

The other part of the practice is dedicated to helping patients with a range of painful conditions, using osteopathic treatment. I use a gentle, holistic ‘hands on’ approach to treat the body as a whole. I can help if you are suffering from back pain, neck pain and other joint and soft tissue injuries. Osteopathy can also assist patients suffering with migraines, sciatica and repetitive strain injuries.

I use dry needling, laser acupuncture and deep tissue massage to help resolve pain and tension in muscles. Specific exercises can also be prescribed to help manage chronic back pain and to improve range of motion and decrease stiffness caused by arthritic joints.
