Biographical Information

Dr. Mark Creaby is a Senior Lecturer in Biomechanics at the Brisbane Campus of the School of Exercise Science. Mark gained his Ph.D. from Exeter University in the South West of England, investigating the role of running biomechanics in stress fracture injuries during military training. Prior to his appointment at ACU, Mark was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Health, Exercise & Sports Medicine, University of Melbourne.

Mark‘s research is largely focussed upon the role of walking and running gait biomechanics in the causation of and rehabilitation from (i) lower limb overuse injuries, and (ii) lower limb osteoarthritis. Specific projects include understanding the role of bending loads in tibial stress fracture injury, altered muscle function following ACL injury, and the interaction between mechanical joint stiffness and episodes of giving way in people with knee osteoarthritis.

Mark is member of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI). Mark is an Honorary Fellow of the Centre for Health, Exercise & Sports Medicine, University of Melbourne.
