Neuromuscular and Biomechanical Mechanisms of Painful Rotator Cuff Tears: Establishing Scientifically-Based Treatment

Project: Research project

Project Details


The following are short-term goals that will be completed during this 2-year fellowship: (1) Gain skills in magnetic resonance imaging signal processing to quantify muscle structure, methodology for biomechanical measures of passive joint stiffness, and complimentary methods to quantify motor control. (2) Enhance grant writing skills, generate data, and submit competitive federal (K01, KL2, and R01) grant proposals. (3) Maintain my commitment to the responsible conduct of research including additional formal training and mentoring in complex ethics, collaborative sciences, and responsibilities in biomedical human subjects research. I seek training in MR image signal processing to quantify muscle structure and enhanced methods to quantify motor control and strength that will be achieved by this NIFTI fellowship. My research project supports the science of physical therapy practice by comprehensively defining mechanisms that exist in degenerative RC tear, with and without pain, and the effects of underlying muscle structure.
