Default SomaSimple interview with Steven George

Somasimple is very pleased to present Steven George, recent keynote speaker at the 2008 AAOMPT conference in Seattle, as our next guest in Choices.

Steven Z. George, PT, PhD received his bachelor’s degree in physical therapy from West Virginia University (summa cum laude) in 1994. He received a master’s degree in orthopedic physical therapy and a doctoral degree in rehabilitation science from the University of Pittsburgh in 1997 and 2002, respectively. Dr. George completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the Center for Pain Research and Behavioral Health at the University of Florida. After that, he joined the faculty at the University of Florida as an assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy.

Dr. George’s primary research interests involve the utilization of biopsychosocial models for the prevention and treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain disorders. Dr. George’s research has been supported by the University of Florida, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, and the Foundation for Physical Therapy. His current research projects include: 1) Developing and testing behavioral interventions for patients with low back pain; 2) Investigating the interaction between pain related genetic and psychological factors in the development of post-operative chronic shoulder pain; 3) Investigating the mechanisms and efficacy of manual therapy techniques; and 4) Developing and testing low back pain prevention programs for Soldiers in the United States Army (www.polm.ufl.edu). Dr. George has authored over 45 peer-reviewed publications and has been recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association with the 2007 Eugene Michels New Investigator Award and the American Pain Society with the 2009 John C. Liebeskind Early Career Scholar Award.
