Dr. Milner is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science, and a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. Applying an understanding of biomechanical factors associated with injury in runners and other recreational athletes via gait and movement retraining protocols takes this work directly into the area of rehabilitation. In addition, Dr. Milner has interests in walking biomechanics in obese adults and older adults with knee osteoarthritis or joint replacement. Dr. Milner publishes her work in biomechanics, sports medicine, and clinical journals.
