Research Institute of Human Movement


RIHM has three components: Original Research: RIHM provides a platform for movement professionals and clinicians to collaborate with local researchers, college professors and post-doctoral residents/fellows to conduct and publish original quality research. RIHM will support the research all the way through to publication in top-level, peer-reviewed scientific journals. Through this kind of research and publication, RIHM hopes to be a leader in establishing an evidence-based approach to addressing our nation’s #1 cause of disability which most effects our quality of life: movement disability/pain/dysfunction. Education: RIHM believes education is a never-ending process for those endeavoring to excel in their field. The research process is an education in itself for the researcher. Researchers will consist of RIHM’s own staff, undergraduate Kinesiology students, professional clinicians, post-doctorate residents/fellows and college professors. Service: The purpose of RIHM’s research is so that it can be applied to the community. RIHM believes that human movement is the basis for human quality of life and performance. RIHM provides funding and organization for local clinicians to apply best-evidence practice in treating ‘at risk’* community residents presenting with movement based impairments that threaten their quality of life or performance at work. *’At risk’ individuals would include, but may not be limited to, those without insurance, low income, seniors without sufficient coverage, young athletes without means.
