In this episode of the Owens Recovery Science podcast Johnny and Kyle chat with Mark Mañago, PT, DPT, PhD, NCS. Mark is an Assistant Professor in the Physical Therapy program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Dr. Mañago is a dedicated researcher, focused on advancing clinical research in the field of rehabilitation in people with multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions by investigating clinically feasible targeted exercise interventions to improve participation. This year, he was awarded a K-12 award through the Comprehensive Opportunities in Rehabilitation Research Training (CORRT) program and recently received a pilot award from the Consortium of MS Centers to study the feasibility of BFR in people with MS.
