Centres & Labs
Although the School of Physiotherapy may be housed in the oldest building on the Dalhousie campus, the Forrest building, its researchers are nothing short of cutting edge. Our faculty researchers pursue further study to develop their understanding of preventative measures and reactive treatments that promote mobility and functionality in patients.
Sarah Kraeutner and Tony Ingram, shows that inhibition of motor related areas in the brain do not impair the ability to learn a skill through motor imagery-based practice.
Faculty in the School of Physiotherapy engage in a broad range of research investigation with labs crossing all areas of physiotherapy practice including:
