Welcome Assistant Professor
Arin M. Ellingson is excited to join the faculty at the University of Minnesota as an Assistant Professor in the Program in Physical Therapy. Dr. Ellingson received his BS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. This was followed by a PhD at the University of Minnesota, also in Biomedical Engineering, where his thesis defined the relationship between intervertebral disc degeneration and altered three-dimensional spinal kinematics of the lumbar spine. From there he spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow at Mayo Clinic studying joint kinematics using imaging approaches. He also assisted in the coordination and instruction of the University of Minnesota Rehabilitation Science course: Human Kinetics. Dr. Ellingson will continue instructing this course as well as Physical Therapy’s Clinical Biomechanics. Dr. Ellingson’s research strategy takes a multifaceted approach to identify biomarkers of spinal health based on kinematics and imaging techniques. One of his primary research avenues utilizes biplane fluoroscopy to measure intersegmental spinal motion and quantify abnormal or aberrant patterns as a function of pain and/or pathology. The integration of movement assessment with quantitative MRI techniques, capable of measuring biochemical content and mechanical integrity of the intervertebral disc, can provide a more comprehensive view of spinal health.
