On December 5th and 6th, UCSF Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science hosted The California Physical Therapy Association/CAL-PT-FUND Annual Research Symposium: "Retraining Movement Dysfunction – Translating Current Science to Practice". Well-known researchers and clinicians from throughout California and beyond discussed their research and implications for retraining movement dysfunction.
During the past year at UCSF/SFSU, I have been committed to a a year-long research experience, working alongside my classmate Andrew Tran, and several faculty and researchers, including Rich Souza, PT, PhD and Hsiang-Ling (Sharon) Teng, PT, PhD. We began this project in January 2014, and over the past year, I have participated in research at almost every step of the process.
Program graduate Inna Belogolovsky has been published in the Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy! Her article, entitled "The Effectiveness of Exercise in Treatment of Pregnancy-Related Lumbar and Pelvic Girdle Pain: A Meta-Analysis and Evidence-Based Review," is based on the research she conducted during her third-year evidence-based project.
Earlier this fall, the physical therapists and staff in the Outpatient Faculty Practice took time out of their work to participate in a team building exercise - bubble soccer! This event was coordinated by Cathy Hoang, PT, DPT, OCS, Staff Physical Therapist and Teresa Reyes, Practice Assistant. Thank you to both Cathy and Teresa for organizing a healthy, outdoor team-building activity!
