Clinical Studies


  • Investigation of Neurocognitive Measures of Sport-Related Injury Rochester, Minn.

    The overall objective is to provide an onsite diagnosis with subsequent return to play criteria, as well as, lower the risk of traumatic brain injury by primary prevention through cervical spine neuromuscular control and vision training. The central hypothesis is that improved understanding of neurocognitive measures and function will provide improved diagnosis of concussion and help reduce the incidence of subsequent sports-related injury.

  • Artificially Intelligent Biofeedback Sleeve for Prevention and Rehabilitation of Traumatic Knee Injury Minneapolis, Minn., Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to conduct a comprehensive clinical and biomechanical screening of high school, collegiate-level, recreational, and Olympic/professional-level athletes with the goal of identifying individual functional and performance deficits that lead to future injury.

  • Glymphatic and Sensorimotor Systems in Low Back Pain Patients with Potential Central Sensitization Syndrome (G&S LBP) Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of Central Sensitization and Glymphatic flow in connection with chronic low back pain.  Data will be assessed to determine the effect of these characteristics on the symptoms of low back pain.  Future work from this pilot study will include a clinical trial to assess how these aspects can be altered to improve the outcomes of chronic low back pain.

  • Mayo Posture Positivity Power Program (MayoP4) for Active and Aging Individuals in Communities Rochester, Minn. The research is designed to answer effectiveness of community-based multimodal intervention programs on physical, mental, cognitive, social, and environmental in active and aging individuals.
  • Sex Disparities in Arthrogenic Muscle Inhibition (AMI) Rochester, Minn.

    Incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures disproportionately affect female athletes at a rate 4-6 times greater than male counterparts. In addition, females have a reinjury rate 16 times that of healthy female controls and 4 times that of male ACL reconstruction (ACLR) counterparts. After ACL injury and throughout rehabilitation, a ubiquitous impairment that limits athlete progression to return to sport (RTS) is atrophy of the musculature surrounding the knee, termed arthrogenic muscle inhibition (AMI).The focus of the study is to develop an objective, reproducible, and reliable measure of neuromotor activation (directly correlated with AMI) and neuromuscular elicited muscle stiffness for both injury prevention and rehabilitation.
