      Dr. H-L Sharon Teng obtained her entry-level undergraduate degree in Physical Therapy in 2002 and a Master degree in Physical Therapy with a focus on Orthopedics in 2004 from the National Yang-Ming University in Taipei, Taiwan. She practiced as an orthopedic physical therapist and a clinical instructor mentoring physical therapy interns for 6 years in Taiwan. Thereafter, she relocated to Los Angeles and earned her Ph.D. in Biokinesiology with a focus on Biomechanics at the University of Southern California (USC) in 2013. Her doctoral dissertation was titled “Influence of Sagittal Plane Trunk Posture on Lower Extremity Biomechanics during Running: Implication for Lower Extremity Running Injuries.” Her research utilized motion analysis, electromyography, musculoskeletal modeling and strength testing to understand loading patterns across various running forms. Throughout her time at USC, she also taught Musculoskeletal, Functional and Neuro- Anatomy to doctor of physical therapy students.

      In 2014, Sharon joined the Musculoskeletal Quantitative Imaging Research Group in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF as a postdoctoral scholar. Her research examines the relationships between mechanics of human movement and advanced quantitative magnetic resonance imaging. She is currently involved in projects that examine the effects of walking mechanics on functional outcomes and cartilage degenerative changes to determine biomarkers associated with early stages of knee osteoarthritis. Her long-term research goal is to develop non-surgical prevention and intervention protocols of lower extremity osteoarthritis and running-related injuries.

      Sharon is involved in the UCSF RunSafe program, a program which offers runners or walkers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary and individualized evaluation of gait biomechanics, strength and flexibility, sports nutrition, foot structure and footwear choices. In the RunSafe clinic, she utilizes video technology to evaluate biomechanical characteristics of runners and provides recommendations to help improve running performance and prevent running injuries. She also participates in teaching motion analysis, running biomechanics, radiography, cartilage MR imaging, and research in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at UCSF.
