Academic Milestone for Chiropractic Research Chair
The University of Regina has awarded tenure to Dr. Paul Bruno, DC, PhD.
Dr. Bruno is an Assistant Professor and holds the distinguished CCRF Research Chair in Neuromusculoskeletal Health at the University of Regina in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies.
His recent awards include the $95,385 CCRF-Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) Establishment Grant which brings tremendous health benefits to the people of Saskatchewan and Canada.
Dr. Bruno’s research interests are in the fields of motor control and rehabilitative exercise therapy for low back pain (LBP) patients. His research program focuses on quantifying the motion patterns and muscle activation patterns around the lumbar spine and pelvis during clinical testing procedures used to detect specific neuromuscular control deficits in patients.
His research utilizes a 6-Camera 3D Vicon MX Motion Capture System, which is a highly sophisticated technology with the capability to perform complex biomechanical analyses. Special cameras track the movement of body segments and this information is then digitally combined to calculate the relative motion of the lumbar spine and pelvis. He also utilizes an 8-Channel Telemetered Delsys Trigno Surface Electromyography System.
The Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies is located in the Centre for Kinesiology, Health and Sport and has outstanding laboratory and research facilities, including the Neuromechanical Research Centre, a Falls Prevention laboratory, an Exercise Physiology laboratory, a Healthy Aging laboratory and also houses the Aspen Medical Centre and the Dr. Paul Schwann Applied Health and Research Centre.
Dr. Bruno is one of our profession’s world-class researchers who has clearly distinguished himself and brought tremendous credibility and expertise to the profession. Integrating our profession into the university environment has catalyzed the generation of credible research.
He follows a growing list of world-class chiropractic researchers being granted tenure at universities across Canada. As the profession’s research capacity and expertise in musculoskeletal health grows, our profile and credibility across Canada dramatically rises – all to the benefit of all Canadians and their health.
The award of tenure signifies an enormous academic milestone in the university system.
Send him a note of congratulations – he has earned it!
