National University Students Present Posters at Sports Medicine Event

Lombard - Six National University students have been selected to present posters at the 2012 American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians Sports Medicine National Symposium held the last week in April in Portland, Oregon. They've worked on the posters in conjunction with faculty member, Dr. Thomas Solecki, who has been bringing students to the event since 2008.

This year, student presenters include Rich Ulm, Theresa Gay, Ashley Boller, Miravone Dorough, Nate Porcher and Joe Pizowkin. These students have been in Dr. Solecki's functional rehabilitation or elective courses at NUHS, studying clinical sports medicine applications.

This year's NUHS student poster topics include:soleckithomas

  • Gluteal Activation in Combination with Active Release Therapy in the Treatment of Illiotibial Band Friction Syndrome.
  • Treatment of Muscular Imbalance in 23-Year-Old Male Athlete with Femoral Intramedullary Enchondroma.
  • Successful Treatment of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Cervical Disc Herniation Causing C6-7 Radiculopathy via McKenzie Technique®, Reflex Locomotion, Active Release Technique® and Chiropractic Manipulation.
  • Use of Active Conservative Care Techniques in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
  • Sports Related Concussions: Are These Athletes Really Ready to Return to Play?
  • Chronic Traumatic Encephalitis and Early Onset Neurodegenerative Disorders: New Defining Evidence.

Dr. Solecki says that involving students in research was one of his main missions when he arrived at NUHS. "Right now, I have four research projects I'm working on with students. My latest publication, co-authored by student Kurt Hostnick, began as a poster presentation for this very same sports medicine symposium." That article came out this month in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine.

Evidence based practice is a key component of National University's curriculum. "Working together with faculty on research posters is a great way to involve the students in work that can provide additional resources to the chiropractic profession, and give them
motivation to publish their research," says Solecki.
