Brief description My research investigates how muscles & movement patterns (i.e. biomechanics) contribute to early adverse knee cartilage & bone changes in young individuals at risk of developing premature knee osteoarthritis (OA): a debilitating disease causing pain & diminished quality of life. Biomechanical measures selected can be modified with interventions such as exercise & gait retraining. Ultimately, my research could reduce future risk of knee OA & its resultant personal & societal costs.
