Philip Malloy, PT, PhD

Malloy received his master’s in physical therapy from Nazareth College of Rochester in 2003 and spent 10 years in clinical practice in a variety of orthopedic and sports medicine settings. In 2018, Malloy received his PhD in clinical and translational rehabilitation health science with an emphasis in biomechanics from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Rush University Medical Center. Malloy’s postdoctoral research involves using image-based modeling techniques to quantify the 3D structure of the hip joint in patients with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome using both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. The overall goal of his research is to understand the role of joint structure in movement alterations during functional tasks in people with hip joint injury. This research looks to advance rehabilitation for young adult hip injury through a better understanding of the relationship between body structure and function.
