Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Anatomy

Paul W. Hodges spends much of his time researching Electromyography, Low back pain, Physical therapy, Anatomy and Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His Electromyography research includes elements of Pelvic floor, Deltoid curve, Isometric exercise and Muscle contraction. His research investigates the connection between Low back pain and topics such as Motor control that intersect with problems in Motor cortex, Transcranial magnetic stimulation and Motor learning.

His Physical therapy research focuses on Orthopedic surgery and how it relates to Central nervous system disease. In his study, Muscles of respiration is inextricably linked to Core stability, which falls within the broad field of Anatomy. The various areas that Paul W. Hodges examines in his Physical medicine and rehabilitation study include Psychological intervention, Patellofemoral pain syndrome, Randomized controlled trial, Neck pain and Motor system.

His most cited work include:

  • Inefficient muscular stabilization of the lumbar spine associated with low back pain : A motor control evaluation of transversus abdominis (1440 citations)
  • A comparison of computer-based methods for the determination of onset of muscle contraction using electromyography (707 citations)
  • Measurement of muscle contraction with ultrasound imaging. (610 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Physical therapy, Electromyography, Low back pain and Anatomy. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rehabilitation, Range of motion and Motor control. His Physical therapy research incorporates elements of Osteoarthritis, Clinical trial, Orthopedic surgery, Randomized controlled trial and Confidence interval.

His Electromyography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Isometric exercise, Pelvis, Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Deltoid curve and Muscle contraction. The concepts of his Low back pain study are interwoven with issues in Back pain, Lumbar, Trunk muscle and Psychosocial. His study on Pelvic floor, Abdominal muscles and Transversus abdominis is often connected to Body movement as part of broader study in Anatomy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (42.32%)
  • Physical therapy (38.87%)
  • Electromyography (27.94%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (42.32%)
  • Low back pain (26.28%)
  • Physical therapy (38.87%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Low back pain, Physical therapy, Electromyography and Rehabilitation. His research in Physical medicine and rehabilitation intersects with topics in Transcranial magnetic stimulation, Somatosensory system, Sensory system and Sitting. His studies in Low back pain integrate themes in fields like Psychosocial, Back pain, Lumbar and Motor control.

Paul W. Hodges combines subjects such as Osteoarthritis, Randomized controlled trial, Psychological intervention and Clinical trial with his study of Physical therapy. Paul W. Hodges focuses mostly in the field of Osteoarthritis, narrowing it down to matters related to Orthopedic surgery and, in some cases, Range of motion. His Electromyography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anatomy, Femoroacetabular impingement and Isometric exercise.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The psychological features of patellofemoral pain: A systematic review (65 citations)
  • Smudging of the Motor Cortex Is Related to the Severity of Low Back Pain. (54 citations)
  • Fascial tissue research in sports medicine: from molecules to tissue adaptation, injury and diagnostics: consensus statement (52 citations)
