Host to both undergraduate and graduate courses in the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries including orthopedic evaluation, general medical evaluation, therapeutics, rehabilitation, and manual therapy.
Equipped for investigating how human movement and body tissues are affected by mechanical physics and engineering principles, research in the lab focuses on performance improvement, injury prevention and assessment, and sport-related concussion.
Creating and disseminating knowledge regarding the importance of habitual physical activity/exercise and appropriate nutrition for optimal body composition as it relates to health status, with a special interest in aging and women's health across the lifespan.
Designed to conduct theory-based research that examines the effects of physical activity on cognitive function, our studies involve electromyography, electroencephalography, and event-related potentials.
Outfitted for research that focuses on the effects that physical activity have on mood, emotional responses and stress, our researchers also look at the effects exercise has on cardiovascular health.
The Integrative Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory examines vascular function, with an emphasis on the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
The Movement Studies Lab investigates movement and strength development in children and adults.
This 1,500-square-foot lab is dedicated to the development of new noninvasive methods of measuring skeletal muscle and blood vessel function. These methods are then applied to the study of how activity and inactivity influence the health of people with chronic diseases and injuries.
The Physical Activity Measurement Laboratory specializes in the measurement of physical activity among diverse populations. We also can also provide help in selecting appropriate self-report measures of physical activity.
Offering hands-on research and skills-building for future teachers and coaches in sports, physical education and physical activity. Students take on research related to education and methods of teaching sport, while graduate students get hands-on training for future advanced study in sport teaching methods.
The UGA Concussion Research Laboratory is equipped to examine concussed patients from a variety of campus and community referral resources.
