September 30, 2019 — 

A research study at the University of Manitoba hopes to learn more about how the trapezius muscle functions, which is important for successful rehabilitation and/or prevention of a variety of upper limb injuries.

The research team, led by Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management assistant professor Dr. Trisha Scribbans, is recruiting men and women (18-40 years of age) to participate in a study looking at muscle activation throughout different parts of the trapezius muscle during various intensities of movement.
