Timothy E. Hewett, PhD
uses EBM datasets to determine which athletes are at increased risk for ACL injuries. Then prevents them using RCT designs to determine which interventions decrease risk for ACL injuries in large cohort populations. With two-pronged, dual preventative measures uses EBM datasets and RCT designs to determine which interventions are most efficacious in specific athletes, both individuals and groups, that are at increased risk for ACL injuries.
