Dr Chris Bishop is an Adelaide based Podiatrist and Biomechanist with a strong focus on high performance, orthopaedic lower limb biomechanics, footwear and rehabilitation.
Chris studied Podiatry at UniSA and since graduating, has balanced a full time orthopaedic based clinical load with his research interests.
Chris’ PhD focussed on the effect of custom foot orthotics and athletic footwear in the treatment of plantar heel pain. His Post-Doctoral work focussed on the effect of footwear design on running performance, as well as factors influencing the perception of footwear comfort. When not consulting with patients, you will find Chris in one of our research labs.
His current research program focusses on three key themes:
With a view to translate research into practice, Chris founded The Biomechanics Lab in 2010, with the new facility being established in June, 2018. This purpose-built podiatry, 3D gait analysis and rehabilitation centre is Adelaide’s only private 3D gait facility.
The Biomechanics Lab provides podiatry clinical services, strength and conditioning programs and gait analysis services to help understand biomechancial functional, inform rehabilitation programs and optimise athletic performance.
