At the Bone & Joint Injury Prevention & Rehabilitation Center, we help create lifelong musculoskeletal health, emphasizing physical activity and exercise across the lifespan. Our goal is to prevent injury and achieve optimal health, mobility, and quality of life throughout each person’s lifespan.
Our two primary areas of interest are musculoskeletal injury and arthritis and head injury and concussion; our research focuses on injury prevention and on effective treatment and rehabilitation that are essential to putting the person back on the path to optimal health.
We also focus on seven sub-areas for different populations: exercise and conditioning; sports; veterans' health; recreation and play; movement and physical activity for children and adolescents; physical activity for successful aging; and work-related physical activity.
Jenna Craft is a member of the Class of 2009 at Pinckney Community High School. She first tore her ACL at the age of 12 playing basketball for a community league team. Following 15 months of surgery and rehabilitation, she went back to sports, this time girls' soccer, only to tear the ACL in her other knee. Yet another round of surgery and rehabilitation ensued. Today, she devotes her time to studies and soccer as a forward on the Lady Pirates.
