Research

Research and education are integral parts of Shriners Hospitals for Children — Erie. Our mission is to conduct research to best understand the complexities of the children we serve and implement evidence-based treatment strategies that make a difference.

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Erie’s state-of-the-art motion analysis center provides for study of motion strategies across a broad spectrum of diagnoses, from children with cerebral palsy to adolescents with sports injuries. Collaborating with local universities and regional health care centers provides for a team approach to research that may not otherwise be available in a small outpatient center.

Remaining active in conference presentations provides Shriners Hospitals for Children — Erie the opportunity to engage much larger research institutions, thereby remaining cutting edge in our techniques and program development.
