Dr. Young is primarily involved in teaching the musculoskeletal track, where she integrates examination/evaluation with interventions, including joint mobilization and manipulation for the spine and extremities. She also is the primary instructor for kinesiology, critical inquiry and evidence based practice. Dr. Young is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy and is also a Certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist. Her research interests are varied, and she is interested in joint manipulation in the spine and extremities, as well as educational strategies and outcomes for online/hybrid entry level DPT education. She has published in the Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapy, Physical Therapy Reviews and the Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy. Dr. Young maintains a clinical practice along with her full time teaching duties, and her special interests in clinical practice include the spine, hip and shoulder.
