Musculoskeletal Sonography and Occupational Performance

Research conducted in the Musculoskeletal Sonography and Occupational Performance Laboratory led by Shawn C. Roll is focused on the prevention, assessment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries with a focus on the use of musculoskeletal sonographic imaging. The laboratory explores the interactions among environmental, activity and psychosocial factors, as well as their positive and negative effects on body structures, functions and occupational performance. This research, conducted in laboratory, clinical and community-based settings, is meant to inform and enhance preventive and rehabilitative interventions.
