Athletic Training Lab
The Athletic Training (AT) Laboratory aims to advance neuromuscular assessment, musculoskeletal imaging, and rehabilitation methods for the lumbopelvic-hip complex, while improving the understanding and delivery of patient care for active individuals with chronic musculoskeletal injury. The AT Laboratory analyzes spatial, mechanical, and electrical changes in muscle activity during static, dynamic, and sport-specific tasks using innovative applications of ultrasound imaging and surface electromyography. The use of biofeedback programming for ultrasound imaging, electromyography, and inertial measurement units to improve patient rehabilitation and recovery is integral to the mission of the AT Laboratory. Chronic musculoskeletal injuries examined by the AT Laboratory investigators include: low back pain, patellofemoral pain, and a variety of other injuries involving the lumbopelvic-hip complex.
