Research Interests: 

My clinical research interests are in the area of rehabilitation and sports medicine.  More specifically, my research integrates clinical, biomechanical, and physiological aspects of human movement and gait analysis. It also includes the exploration of the medical and clinical uses and effects of extracorporeal shockwave therapy, the clinical application and rationale for the use of therapeutic taping and bracing, the biomechanical analysis of concussion and clinical trials exploring various assessment and treatment techniques, manual therapy and length tension testing and the relationships between muscle and myofascial tissues in various musculoskeletal disorders, and the integration of medical technologies for both assessment and treatment purposes.
