Dr. Neil Segal
Medical Director & Director of Clinical Research @Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation & University of Kansas Department of Rehab Medicine
His clinical practice involves the use of ultrasound guidance to serve patients with musculoskeletal problems such as tendinopathy, osteoarthritis, and other painful conditions. He has led a productive program for musculoskeletal clinical trials for the past 20 years. There are three arms to his clinical research program. One uses diagnostic imaging to identify factors which predict who will develop painful knee osteoarthritis in the future so that preventive interventions can be designed. Another involves use of rehabilitation programs and other interventions to improve mobility in people with lower limb osteoarthritis. The third is aimed at reducing risk for musculoskeletal problems that occur following pregnancy. The long-term goals of his research program are to reduce risk for disablement due to ankle, knee and hip osteoarthritis, tendinosis and other lower limb musculoskeletal problems.
