Twenty-five research projects, with findings ranging from sports performance and exercise prescription to neck and elbow pain treatments, were presented at the 15th annual Performance Health Scientific Advisory Committee meeting (known as TRAC) held August 1 - 4, 2013 in Moscow, Russia.

"In addition to the significant body of research presented in Moscow, our TRAC members have published 31 papers and abstracts, including 11 collaborative projects over the past 12 months," stated Dr. Phil Page, Director of Clinical Education and Research for Performance Health.
