UNC CCCR Speaker Series: Dr. Brian Pietrosimone

February 28 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Speaker: Brian Pietrosimone, PhD, ATC (Associate Prof., Dept. of Exercise and Sport Science, UNC)

Talk Title: The Biomechanical Path to Osteoarthritis Following Knee Injury and a GAIT-way to Improved Outcomes

Brief Description: Optimal movement is paramount to maintaining joint health. The development and progression of osteoarthritis has been linked, in part, to altered mechanical joint loading. Traumatic knee injuries are known to lead to changes in walking gait that may alter knee tissue loading and accelerate the development of osteoarthritis. This presentation will specifically describe: i) the aberrant gait biomechanics that we have measured following anterior cruciate ligament injury; ii) the links between these aberrant gait biomechanics and deleterious knee tissue changes related to osteoarthritis development; and iii) some emerging ideas for mitigating aberrant gait biomechanics following anterior cruciate ligament injury.
