RESEARCHOur focus is cutting-edge, impactful research that minimizes the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal injury and disability; we aim to educate the next generation of scientists and clinicians and engage with the public to translate research innovation into an improved quality of life.
Our research goals are to incorporate a systematic process of research exploration that is directly tied back to the care of our patients. We will utilize the resources available to us to complete high-quality research that can be utilized both directly in our care pathways and shared broadly via publication to the sports medicine world.
Our combined research and clinical mission also allow us to develop evidence-based educational materials to support the assessment and training of active people of all levels. Furthermore, by studying the outcomes of training and our procedures we can better direct cost-effective, value-based care.
