Anatomy and Bone Physiology

Dr Daniel Bonanno reviews the anatomy of the foot and bone physiology to give you a better understanding of where and why foot BSIs occur in our running athletes.

Assessment and Diagnosis

Daniel takes you through thorough assessment videos of the foot so that you can make better clinical decisions in those athletes with suspected foot BSI

Treatment and Management

From weight bearing restrictions to biomechanical considerations to running assessment to footwear considerations to load management; Daniel will walk you through an evidence based approach to the management of foot BSI

Dr. Daniel Bonanno

Dr Daniel Bonanno is the podiatrist for the Carlton Football Club (AFL) and a Senior Lecturer in Podiatry. Daniel has a particular interest in the management and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders of the foot and ankle in physically active populations. In addition, he is the Graduate Research Coordinator for Podiatry and Prosthetics & Orthotics in the School of Allied Health, Human Services and Sport at La Trobe University.

Daniel completed his PhD in 2019, where he investigated the use of foot orthoses for the prevention of injury in military recruits. He was awarded the Nancy Millis Medal for completing a PhD thesis of exceptionally high quality. Daniel is an Associate Editor of the free-access Journal of Foot and Ankle Research and the Victorian Director for Sports and Exercise Podiatry Australia.

Daniel is currently involved in several research projects with colleagues and students, including running retraining, and evaluations of foot orthoses the athletic footwear. His research has primarily included, but is not limited to, laboratory-based biomechanical studies and clinical trials.

Dr. Brooke Patterson

PhD | B.Physio (Hon.)

Dr Patterson is a physiotherapist and research fellow at the La Trobe University Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre. After working in a variety of public, private, and sports settings, she completed her PhD in 2020, investigating the risk of arthritis at a young age after ACL injury, and how physiotherapist-led interventions can help improve outcomes beyond the typical rehabilitation period. 

Brooke has sustained an ACL injury herself, played in the first three seasons of the women’s national Australian Football League, and is now coaching. Currently, she is coordinating an injury prevention clinical trial in women’s community Australian football.
