Clinical Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Research Laboratory
The Clinical Orthopedic Rehabilitation and Research (CORR) Laboratory is committed to providing an opportunity for faculty and students to study the biomechanical factors contributing to musculoskeletal injury, and to advance clinical research in orthopedic rehabilitation.
A variety of clinical research projects are being conducted by the orthopedic research team. This is a collaborative lab space with researcher Wen Liu's Neuromuscular Research Laboratory.
Neena Sharma, PT, PhD, CMPT
Assistant Professor and Director, CORR Laboratory
The focus of Sharma's research is on chronic lower back pain, as well as hip, leg and knee conditions such as osteoarthritis. Using exercise, manual therapy and fMRI assessments, she is exploring possible new treatments for these common and significant impairments. Projects
Linda Denney, PT, M.Appl.Sci (Manip)
Denny's research emphasis concerns rotary instability of the knee, specifically anterior cruciate ligament injury and prevention. She is also studying rehabilitation after total knee replacement.
Stephen D. Jernigan, PT, PhD
Clinical Assistant Professor
In addition to studying fall risk assessment and quality of life in people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, Jernigan is also actively engaged in work using Thera-Band for exercise prescription.
