Kulig is Distinguished Lecturer at AAOMPT National Conference


Division faculty member Kornelia Kulig delivered the third annual Distinguished Lectureship at the 2014 national conference for the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists in San Antonio, Texas earlier this fall. 

Her lecture, titled “Recurrent Symptoms: Lessons Learned from Returning Patients,” examined correlates between tendinopathies and low back pain—two painful musculoskeletal conditions—to better understand the underlying pathologies for the conditions to alleviate future symptom recurrence.
