Meet our Senior Biomechanist - Rhiannon.

Rhiannon runs our 3D gait lab here at TBL and works with our podiatrists and physiotherapists to ensure they have all the information they need to help manage their patients.

Growing up, Rhiannon was heavily involved in Gymnastics and had a passion for sports, math and science. This sparked her love for exercise and sports science. Rhiannon has completed her Bachelors of Exercise and Sports Science (Honours), worked in the Biomechanics department at the Australian Institute of Sport and recently finished her PhD in Biomechanics.

When Rhiannon isn't studying to become one of the top Biomechanists in her field, you will find her competing in Sports Aerobics and taking her dog Franklin for walks.

We use the latest 3D printing technology to manufacture all our custom foot orthotics.

Our process combines 3D gait analysis, 3D foot scans, the latest 3D printing technology from Footwork Podiatric Laboratory and the experience from our Podiatrists to create the perfect custom foot orthotics for your individual needs.

The secret to the success of our orthotics and the outcomes our patient's achieve through treatment lies in our attention to detail. Right from the initial assessment, we ensure every aspect is perfect to provide you the best possible outcome.

Here at TBL, we see it as part of our role to help contribute to the knowledge of tomorrow.

We are extremely fortunate to have the facilities we do and are always willing to support like-minded scientists and early career researchers in completing their research.

This project will be cool and lucky to be involved! Watch this space.

At The Biomechanics Lab we understand that each child is different. We know there is no such thing as normal and each child will grow and flourish at their own pace. Yet pain or dysfunction is not normal.

Each child runs and walks differently, and it is important to understand why. A detailed assessment using 3D Gait analysis technology allows our podiatrists to gain a full understanding of how children move and where specific problems may be. Based on this information, we provide an individualised treatment plan for each child so that these issues are not carried into adolescence and adulthood.

Meet our Podiatrist Adam.

Adam has over 15 years experience working with patients of all age groups. Yet his particular expertise is in treating children and growing athletes.

Over the years, Adam has worked alongside Paediatric physiotherapists and specialist doctors to manage the needs of his patients. He regularly sees school aged children and adolescents for management of acute sporting injuries, education, gait analysis and developmental delays. Adam is also particularly interested in footwear and provides tailored advice on what to look for when purchasing new shoes.

What is Ahilles Tendinopathy

What is Achilles Tendinopathy?

It can happen to anyone. You don’t have to be a regular runner to get it. Likewise, it’s not about being over-weight. It is about managing the load that you apply on your body and ensuring that your body can handle it.   Achilles tendinopathy is one of the most common presentations of foot and ankle pain podiatrists see in practice. Whether you run or walk for exercise, think of the pain being a result of overuse in that your exercise volume
