My interests reside in the area of running-related injury prediction and prevention and the use and/or misuse of simple clinical measures and their potential over application across varied populations. We have an ongoing prospective investigation utilizing our 3-D Gait image capture system, Cybex isokinetic strength data and muculoskelatal clinical measures looking at their relationship to injury across collegiate distance runners. In submission, we have a study looking at hip external and internal rotation differences between male and female collegiate distance runners and nonrunners. We have also in submission an investigation into the clinical measure of straight leg raise and how it varies by lumbar spine position. A final current investigation looks at the asymmetrical nature of the golf swing and its potential affect on glenohumeral mobility bilaterally.
