Free: Biomechanics & Osteoarthritis Symposium #2

Join the Canadian MSK Rehabilitation Research Network for the GaitNET-Osteoarthritis Canada Seminar Series

Topic: Clinical Biomechanics – Interplay between pain and gait biomechanics

Date: Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Time: 12:00-2:00pm (EST)

Location: Zoom – free, but pre-registration is required.

This exciting seminar series focuses on research priorities in gait biomechanics research. The goal is to stimulate discussion among researchers, trainees and clinicians to increase collaboration, build links between biomechanics labs and discuss priorities and opportunities in the field.

Building on the successful Biomechanics & Osteoarthritis Symposium held in May, 2021 (watch here: https://mskrehabnet.com/boas/), the November 30th webinar focuses on clinical biomechanics research relating to pain and gait biomechanics.

Leading experts Drs. Monica Maly, Katherine Boyer, Tuhina Neogi, Lisa Carlesso, and Tim Wideman will share advances in pain science including mechanisms of pain generation and perception, as well as how altered gait biomechanics may influence pain. They will discuss key concepts to consider when conducting clinical biomechanics research that includes both pain and biomechanical outcomes.
