Ongoing Research

Clinical Outcomes Following Arthroscopic Knee Surgery (COFAKS). (Oct 2014 - Ongoing)

The primary purpose of this study is to determine the normative recovery trajectory of patients following arthroscopic knee surgery by using clinical and physical performance measures.

Clinical Outcomes of the Spinal Patient from Conservative Care to the Post-Operative Management (July 2017 - Ongoing)

The purpose of this research addendum is to examine the normative recovery trajectory of spinal patients participating in an evidence based spine triage model by using clinical and physical performance measures.

Does Blood Flow Restriction Training Improve Quadriceps Function after Arthroscopic Knee Surgery? A Randomized Clinical Trial (Dec 2017 - Ongoing)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of physical therapy (PT) plus BFR training compared to PT alone (without BFR training) at 1, 2, 3, and 6 months after the initiation of PT after ACL reconstruction in patients who require extended limited weight bearing through assessment of patient reported outcomes and functional testing.
