Tim Maiden

LEAD PODIATRIST

 

Timothy Maiden is the lead podiatrist with The Foot Practice. He is also a visiting podiatrist at the Haoma Medical Clinic in Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital and the Raffles Rehabilitation Centre in Raffles Hospital, Singapore.

Tim’s vision is to modernise podiatric care in Singapore. With the integration of the latest technology into his clinical practice, Tim has developed effective treatment plans to correct lower limb function and overall body movement. His goal is to simply help patients move better and to enhance sports performance for athletes.

Tim received his podiatry degree Cardiff Metropolitan University, United Kingdom. With more than a decade of experience, Tim assesses lower limb biomechanics and gets to the root cause of misalignments in the body that contribute to pain and injuries. The recent addition of 3D technology at The Foot Practice complements his expertise in sports, elderly and pediatric podiatry to identify imbalances in walking and running gait. He incorporates other leading treatment techniques such as Shockwave and Dry-Needling to treat foot conditions and injuries including ankle sprains, tendinopathies, metatarsalgia, Morton’s neuroma and plantar fasciitis.

For athletes, Tim knowledge of sports-specific conditioning identifies asymmetrical patterns in gait to help runners and other athletes train better and reduce the incidence of lower limb injuries. By integrating state-of-the-art technologies into assessments every aspect of musculoskeletal movement can be evaluated to pinpoint the slightest imbalances that impede performance gains with 3D Gait Analysis. With data-driven clinical insights, Tim provides quantifiable clinical recommendations to adjust training programmes and to rectify gait issues that can improve sports performance.

Tim also utilises a variety of orthotics –  splints – to align a body’s biomechanical movements. These devices range from simple padding and wedging to supplement footwear, to custom-made orthotic devices that are carefully custom-made for an individual to maximise comfort and to optimise athletic performance.

Tim moved to Singapore in 2011, working at Tan Tock Seng Hospital before joining The Foot Practice. He has worked in Sichuan as part of a group of medical volunteers assisting in villages with Hansen’s disease. He regularly visits India where he assists in the treatment of people suffering diabetes and lymphedema in Kerala and Telangana in India, and in Sri Lanka and Myanmar. For all this work both overseas and Singapore, Tim has received the Cosyfeet Podiatry Award.

A keen sportsman, Tim is a keen and active runner, cyclist and golfer with a single figure handicap. He has trained for triathlons and other races in Singapore. And these days you can often see him cycling the ECPCN trail towards downtown or running in East Coast Park.
