Lindsey Lepley [TWITTER @LindseyLepley @UconnSORE] has a lot to say about eccentric muscle contractions. She runs two labs through UConn’s Sport Optimization and Rehabilitation Lab working to find solutions to injuries and biomechanical issues. Through her research she is affirming much of what we know about the awesomeness of eccentrics. BUT the real moneymaker is that in finding why these tools are so effective, she is able to manipulate them down to the most minute detail to achieve the most bang for your buck. It’s simple stuff but is currently flying under the radar of a ton of PT’s. Tune in, use the tools, rehab your boo-boos, and crush the competition.

The Lab’s research grant and Dr. Lepley’s current research was highlighted in an edition of UConn Today which discussed the importance of the lab’s research going forward along with the significant impact it will hopefully have on the rehabilitation and recovery of hundreds of thousands of Americans who tear an ACL every year.
