Kornelia Kulig to keynote May 8 PT research symposium

Kornelia KuligOn Wednesday, May 8, 2019, the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Department of Physical Therapy will host its 2019 research symposium featuring a keynote lecture by Kornelia Kulig, PhD, PT, FAPTA.

Kulig is a professor and clinical scholar at the University of Southern California Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy. Her talk, "Movement Strategies and Neuromechanical Adaptations during Symptom Remission; A window into Prevention of Recurrence," kicks off the symposium at 4 p.m. 

Kulig will discuss expanding evidence that pain processes involve substantial motor adaptations. Her lecture will demonstrate laboratory evidence that recurrent pain results in altered motor behavior during pain-free periods, and will illustrate neuromechanical adaptations to tendon degeneration. Understanding these adaptations may provide a window into prevention of symptom recurrence in two common painful conditions, namely low back pain and tendinopathies.

The keynote will be followed by light refreshments and research presentations by WSU Applebaum Doctor of Physical Therapy students.
