Dr John Arnold is a Research Fellow and Podiatrist at the Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine (University of Leeds, Chapel Allerton Hospital, UK) and the Sansom Institute for Health Research (UniSA, Adelaide). He received his PhD in 2015 and currently holds an NHMRC CJ Martin Early Career Fellowship.
John’s main area of research focus is the biomechanics and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders in the foot and lower limb (osteoarthritis, orthopaedic trauma, joint replacement). His work has involved several national and international collaborations, book chapters, research student projects and over 30 peer-reviewed journal publications.
His current research is investigating the development and progression of midfoot osteoarthritis. This involves a combination of biomechanical techniques (3D gait analysis, computational modelling), medical imaging (3T MR) and clinical measures (pain, functional impairment and muscle strength).
