Michael Hunt, PhD

University of British Columbia

Dr. Hunt’s research focuses on the assessment and clinical management of musculoskeletal pathologies, specifically knee OA. Analysis of movement patterns and measurement of key disease-specific outcome variables has permitted a means to better understand the biomechanical mechanisms leading to the development and progression of the disease, and has also provided outcomes to assess following treatment. Dr. Hunt has led a number of biomechanical studies and clinical trials focusing on conservative treatment of knee OA, with an emphasis on gait modification, exercise, and orthotics.
