Melbourne Foot Clinic founder Rohan Coull had a vision to create a centre that could facilitate the best practice of biomechanics, foot care, and lower limb health.
Rohan thrives on activity and plays golf, skis, runs and walks two large dogs. In his past he has participated competitively in ironman triathlon, basketball, tennis, cycling and running. This combined sporting experience has enabled him to gain valuable insights into the relationship between activity, biomechanics and foot function. He has a strong interest in heel pain, shin splints, complex foot disorders, normal and abnormal gait function, gait retraining, and postural alignment.
His Sports Medicine Fellowship work centered on the returnto running following lower limb stress injuries and training programs. This work extended his passionate association with lower limb function and biomechanics. In the area of orthotic therapy he has been associated with Latrobe University delivering orthotic related workshops and lectures and is the co-founding author of one of the five internationally recognised orthotic techniques. Rohan has also studied and lectured overseas. Most recently he has been consulting with the PGA Australia on the lower limb postural requirements in a golf swing.
While Rohan has enjoyed involvement along the way with many varied elite athletes from a large variety of sports, it is the everyday athlete, parent, child or student he takes the upmost pride in helping.
