Tom McCarron is a Lecturer in Physiotherapy having worked as a clinician within the NHS and private practice specialising in the assessment and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. His research background involves the assessment of core stability of the spine from an anatomical and biomechanical perspective. His academic interest also relates to the integrative function of joint, muscle and neural structures in normal and pathological states.Current research involves anatomical cadaveric study of the cervical spine with respect to the accuracy of palpation skills utilised by physiotherapists/manual therapists. Also the use of diagnostic ultrasound in identifying joint function in the thoracic spine (specifically costovertebaral and costotransverse joints). Furthermore, the use of ultrasound in imaging muscle structure and function in both assessment and biofeedback strategies.
