Aug. 18, 2020

The Department of Physical Therapy wants to highlight the work of multiple physical therapy students who recently presented their research at the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) national conference. Although the 2020 NSCA pivoted to a virtual format this year, the Department of Physical Therapy was well represented with presentations by Abbie Moore (Class of 2021), Enoch Yee (Class of 2022), and Cal Lawanson (Class of 2021).

Cal Lawanson’s project titled, “Differences in Lateral Step-down Test Sagittal Plane Kinematics in Clients with a History of Lateral Ankle Sprain: Utilizing a Portable Motion Sensor,” focuses on using portable motion sensor to detect movement patterns and inform rehab decisions among those with a history of lateral ankle sprain.
