Orthopedic and Biomechanics research professors like Ryan Mizner, PhD, MSPT and research graduate students like Audrey at the UM’s Movement Science Laboratory hope to demonstrate the benefits of reduced weight rehabilitation for a variety of injuries such as strokes, total joint replacements, and higher-level return to sport performance.
Alpine Physical Therapy was grateful to learn of the Lab’s many potential clinical offerings to help improve our understanding and care for patients with challenging movement mechanics. We look forward to working more with our f
