Professional Interests
Dr. Kulig's research is clinically motivated and experimentally tested.  She studies orthopedic conditions with recurrent symptoms, including low back pain and tendinopathies. In that context she explores tissue morphology, physiology and movement strategies in a broad range of activities, pathology stages and populations. This question-driven approach and focused collaborative efforts serve as a framework for the study of age-and activity-related degenerative processes, and accompanying peripheral and central adaptations and clinical presentations.  Dr. Kulig is Co-Director of the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory.
