Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences Department
1601 Cherry Street, Room 753
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. Dr Milner’s research interests are in the biomechanics of lower extremity injury, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. In particular, her work attempts to understand the biomechanical etiology of overuse injuries in runners, such as tibial stress fracture, iliotibial band syndrome, and plantar fasciitis. 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. Dr Milner is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Applied Biomechanics, and has served the American College of Sports Medicine as Chair of the Biomechanics Interest Group.
