Integration of evidence into patient management is a crucial and evolving component to clinical practice. My research is focused on analyzing dynamic and static characteristics of individuals with musculoskeletal disorders in addition to the outcomes of manual and exercise interventions.

My current research is focused on assessing characteristics (eg, lower leg and foot strength, range of motion, concurrent conditions, and resource utilization) of individuals with plantar heel pain (aka, plantar fasciitis).
