Tracy Hopes studied Podiatry at the University of Brighton and graduated in 1998. Since then she has worked in private practice locally and for the Ministry of Defence in Cyprus.
As a result of a running injury sustained when she was a teenager, Tracy was inspired to become a Podiatrist. Consequently, she has always had a strong focus on biomechanics, foot function, gait and treating musculoskeletal injury (muscle and/or joint pain). In 2003 she helped to set up The Faringdon Clinic and has gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Podiatric Biomechanics.
Tracy has over 20 years of experience working in multi-disciplinary clinics in Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Over time she has built strong links with her Physiotherapist and Osteopathic colleagues, which help her to provide a holistic approach to managing musculoskeletal injury.
She continues to really enjoy the challenge of assessing human movement and helping patients get pain and injury under control. Tracy is now a director of The Faringdon Clinic but has reduced her clinical work to part-time in order to combine family life and help run the family arable farm. Keen to lead an active life, other interests include running, swimming, riding, yoga and skiing.
