Four Fun Facts

Professional Goals 

– helping clinicians determine when orthotic therapy is best used

– the correlation between the radiographic and clinical signs/symptoms of PF OA, and whether these can predict long term PF OA outcomes

Follow my research and clinical journey on Twitter @JadeTan03. I will be posting monthly blogs on various topics relating to foot orthoses and biomechanics via the La Trobe Sports and Exercise Medicine Research Centre blog.
