Phillip Malloy

Phillip is working in the Motion Analysis and Biomechanics laboratory under the guidance of Dr. Kristof Kipp. Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is bone deformity of the hip joint that can lead to abnormal contact between the bones during normal ranges of movements which can lead to acetabular labral tears and pre-mature osteoarthritis of the hip. Phillip’s research involves the investigation of movement pattern differences between patients with symptomatic FAI and healthy persons. In addition, he is investigating how movement patterns change after a structural modification surgery for symptomatic FAI. The identification of movement pattern alterations in persons with FAI can assist orthopedic physical therapists develop specific treatment programs to assist in managing this injury both conservatively and post-operatively.
