Research

My clinical area of expertise is sports medicine, myofascial pain and soft tissue causes of back pain. I have organized national and regional courses on muscle pain, cervicogenic dizziness, musculoskeletal disorders of pregnancy, athletic hip injuries, medical acupuncture and exercise training in rehabilitation, reflecting clinical expertise. I have combined medical acupuncture with pharmacology expertise and behavioral strategies for pain management. I have strong interest in women's musculoskeletal health and sports medicine. Areas of special therapeutic interest include prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma and diagnostic/interventional musculoskeletal ultrasound.

My most recent area of clinical research is in collaboration with the Sports Medicine Department at Wellesley College. We are studying lower extremity strength, flexibility and dynamic control and assessing risk factors for lower extremity injury in female varsity college athletes. I also am actively involved in clinical research about platelet rich plasma injection for sports medicine and musculoskeletal pain.
