Our research focuses on the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of youth sport-related concussion. We conduct clinical research in a variety of different settings, centered on improving health outcomes following a concussion. We study this important clinical problem in a translational fashion, through the use of laboratory and clinical approaches. Through our observational work that incorporates biomechanical, clinical, and epidemiological approaches, we aim to identify pragmatic and effective rehabilitative methods to improve outcomes following concussion.
