Research Interests
My research interests include investigating the role of abnormal biomechanics and muscular fatigue on sports related injuries. In particular, I am interested in the role of fatigue on running mechanics and how these variables relate to overuse running injuries. Similarly, I am interested in the role of neck muscle strength and muscular fatigue in the prevention of, or recovery from sports related concussion.
Current Projects: Running - The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between running stride frequency (steps per minute) and VO2 measures over the course of a run to fatigue.
Current Projects: Concussion - The purpose of this study is to follow Division III collegiate athletes from a baseline, pre-season assessment through their sports seasons. This study will assess for associations between neck strength and concussion occurrence and recovery.
Title Details
Allison M Brown, PT, PhD   2019 Allison M Brown, PT, PhD received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Therapy from The University of Vermont and a Master of Arts in Pathokinesiology from New York University. She then received a PhD in Physical Therapy from Temple University. Dr Brown is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy. She is responsible for teaching Kinesiology, Examination and Intervention II and acts as a small group facilitator for Clinical Inquiry III. Dr Brown's research interests are in the field of biomechanics, specifically biomechanics of the cervical spine as it relates to sports related concussion risk and recovery as well as biomechanics of running injuries. She has published several articles and presented nationally on these topics.
