Welcome to the Clinical Biomechanics Orthopedic and Sports Outcomes Research (COOR) Lab.
The overarching goal is to understand the biomechanics and control of shoulder movement to optimize shoulder performance and enable the diagnosis, rehabilitation and treatment outcomes for patients with shoulder disorders. We focus on the mechanisms of shoulder disorders to design and assess innovative rehabilitation interventions to reduce shoulder pain and restore the ability to perform social, work and sports activities. We also focus on understanding shoulder and elbow movement in overhead athletes to optimize performance and injury prevention. Our goal is to maximize patient outcomes for musculoskeletal shoulder disorders, and optimize performance in overhead athletes to promote return to work, daily activities, and full sport participation.
