Mark W. Cornwall, PT, PhD
Catherine Worthingham Fellow of the American Physical Therapy Association
Dr. Cornwall is a professor in the Program in Physical
Therapy Flagstaff Campus. Dr. Cornwall
has over 35 years of clinical experience with a wide range of practice settings
and conditions. His scholarly interests
are primarily in the foot, especially the kinematics of the normal foot during
walking and the management of overuse injuries of the lower extremity and has
presented his research throughout the United States, in Canada, The
Netherlands, Germany, and Great Britain.
He has published over 100 research articles and book chapters dealing
with the function, evaluation, or treatment of the foot and ankle.
