Associate professor - Doctor of Physical Therapy
The physical therapy profession continues to need evaluation of physical therapy interventions to determine the most effective and efficient treatment for patients. Through partnership with local clinicians, we are evaluating different types of aquatic therapy interventions in patients with balance difficulties. Other research projects include evaluating movement strategies with patients post total hip arthroplasty and force production during exercise in patients post anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
The limb-to-limb differences following knee surgery can persist several years post surgical intervention. We are investigating the differences in side to side force production during LE exercise with subjects that have undergone ACL reconstruction.
