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 and walks one crazy groodle called Frank. 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.
Rohan holds a Sports Medicine Fellowship with the Australasian Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine. In 2017 Rohan set up the 3D RUN LAB, a clinical 3d facility for precision movement assessment. Rohan is a leader in Podiatric Biomechanics and has lectured to Latrobe University students, given papers in Australia and overseas, as well as presented to the PGA of Australia. 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. He has also consulted to Nike, Puma, Adidas and created a footwear consultants program for Sportsco.
When working with any foot disorder, Rohan spends time to gain a clear understanding of the problem and to establish a best practice treatment plan.
