Understanding Neuromuscular Burden of ACL Reconstruction
January 10, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST
The Department of Kinesiology presents a research presentation from Dr. Grant Norte.
Grant Norte is an assistant professor of athletic training and co-director of the Motion Analysis & Integrative Neurophysiology (MAIN) Laboratory at the University of Toledo. His research agenda aims to study the neurophysiological origins of post-traumatic muscular dysfunction among individuals with a history of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction to better understand, and develop, early intervention strategies that promote long-term health and well-being. Norte’s presentation will discuss ACL injury as a source of disability and specifically highlight the clinical implications of neurophysiological adaptations in this population.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Norte received a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine from California Lutheran University, before earning his master’s degree in Athletic Training from the University of Virginia. Following graduate school, he completed an athletic training fellowship at the Steadman Clinic (Vail, CO) and served as the head athletic trainer for the State University of New York at New Paltz for several years before returning to the University of Virginia to complete a Ph.D. in Sports Medicine. Norte currently resides in Sylvania, OH with his wife (Shari), son (Brecken), and dog (Callie).
