Misericordia students present research at national conference


Graduate students in the Misericordia University Doctor of Physical Therapy Program recently presented their capstone research projects at the sixth annual Student Research Symposium: Current Research in Physical Therapy in Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall.

The 44 student researchers, including Feasterville resident Jacquelyn Bamberski, presented their work, “The Physiology Behind and Efficacy of Blood Flow Restriction Training as Part of Knee Pathologies,’’ before an audience of clinical instructors on subjects that focused on musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders, and participated in discussions on their subject matter.

The two-day symposium provided participants with specific learning objectives on 12-student research groups that addressed topics such as hippotherapy, medical cannabis, osteoarthritis, posture, trunk strength and more. Participants earned continuing education credits for completing the symposium.
