Research summaryLow back disorders, shoulder biomechanics, biofeedback and rehabilitation

Research

My research programme has two main research themes. The first is focused on clinical biomechanics, with special interest in shoulder and low back biomechanics. This is a laboratory-based research focusing on the association between musculoskeletal injury and neuromuscular and movement impairments.

The second theme explores the use of biofeedback in rehabilitation, combining laboratory with field-based research. This theme aims to identify ideal forms of feedback provision and its effectiveness as an intervention tool.

My final goal is to use the information gathered from these research themes to inform and develop new strategies for musculoskeletal rehabilitation and injury prevention.
