With an interest in the effects of loading after sports injuries and in clinical and translational novel interventions after knee injuries, David Logerstedt, PT, PhD, MPT, MA, SCS, has been appointed assistant professor of physical therapy at University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. He comes to the University from the University of Delaware, where he had been a research assistant professor of physical therapy since 2012.
Dr. Logerstedt’s research focuses primarily on acute and post-traumatic knee injuries to advance the scientific evidence of the effects of rehabilitation and its long-term impact on joint health. His particular interests utilize clinical, biomechanical, and other assessments across the spectrum of knee disorders in order to improve our understanding of post-traumatic knee injuries and its response to treatment, and to further examine the development and progression of knee osteoarthritis in patients with post-traumatic knee injuries.
At USciences, Dr. Logerstedt will teach physical therapy and rehabilitation-related courses, and manage a motion analysis laboratory in the University’s Department of Physical Therapy Patricia Leahy Laboratory.
Dr. Logerstedt, who is originally from Three Forks, MT, graduated with a bachelor of science in health and human performance from the University of Montana and a master of arts in exercise physiology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He earned a master of physical therapy from East Carolina University and a doctor of philosophy in the interdisciplinary program of biomechanics and movement science from the University of Delaware. He completed a limited time researcher (postdoctoral) position in knee osteoarthritis and total knee arthroplasty with Drs. Lynn Snyder-Mackler and Joseph Zeni, Jr.
Dr. Logerstedt has been a practicing rehabilitation specialist for more than 15 years and is board-certified in sports physical therapy. He was a physical therapist at the athletes’ Olympic Village polyclinic at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. He currently resides in Ambler, PA, with his wife Kristen and their two sons Matthew and Patrick.
