Professor Wins First-Place Research Award from National Physical Therapy Group


High Point University professor Alexis WrightHIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 14, 2012 – Dr. Alexis Wright, assistant professor of physical therapy in the School of Health Sciences at High Point University, was recently awarded first place in the competition for best platform presentation at the International Federation of Orthopaedics Manipulative Physical Therapy Conference in Quebec City. The award was given by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapy.

Wright’s platform, titled “Predictors of response to physical therapy intervention in patients with primary hip osteoarthritis: a comparison of predictive modeling based on varying response criterion,” highlighted the fact that some of the existing clinical prediction rules or prognostic studies being used by clinicians are not as strong as once thought to be.

Wright says the presentations were judged on a variety of areas, including the basis of clinical significance of the topic and overall originality of the research, a clear explanation of methodology, a clear description of results and conclusions, overall presentation style, as well as sufficient answers of questions she received by the audience.

“Winning this award further substantiates that my research is making an impact in the health professions field, and improving the quality of care provided by physical therapists to our patients in the community,” Wright says.
