Dr. Butler has been collaborting with the K-Lab since 2006 during his post-doctoral fellowship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since completing his post-doc Dr. Butler has been a full-time faculty member, director of a biomechanics laboratory and full-time physical therapy student at the University of Evansville. Dr. Butler practiced part-time in an outpatient orthopedic clinic during the past year following the completion of his PT degree. Dr. Butler’s research has focused primarily on the role of footwear and foot orthotic devices on lower extremity movement with a more recent focus on how these interventions may delay the progression of knee osteoarthritis. His research in footwear was acknowledged in 2005 when he was a finalist for the Nike Award for Functional Footwear Research.
Dr. Butler research interests include The effect of non-surgical interventions on variables associated with knee osteoarthritis progression in individuals who have an elevated risk for the early onset of knee osteoarthritis, Establishing evidence based pre-participation screens for musculoskeletal injury and standardized intervention programs to address individual movement dysfunction, Investigating changes in lower extremity motion and loading due to orthotic and footwear intervention during a fresh and fatigued state.
