Research Studies

Allied Health Care for the Ballarat Region

Lake Health Group prides itself on being an industry leader and practicing evidenced based allied health care. Adding weight to this statement is our involvement in a cutting edge research study on hip injuries led by one of our most experienced therapists and researcher, Dr Joanne Kemp. In conjunction with Latrobe University, Jo initially ran a pilot study into hip injuries and as a result of its success (Jo won the Australian Physiotherapy Association prize for best sports paper in 2017), a fully funded research project was launched based on this initial study. This study is currently running , with Jo and Latrobe always looking for participants to join the study locally at the Howitt Street Clinic. Contact Sally Coburn (0484 761 237) for further details. Another study that has just been completed is the Latrobe University ‘Globe’ study. It involved hips, but investigated a different type of hip injury.
