Dr. J. Paul Tucker: Empowering Movement and Health.

As a Doctor of Physical Therapy with 15 years of advanced clinical practice, I’ve dedicated my career to enhancing human mobility and well-being. My journey includes:

  1. Kaiser Permanente Fellowship: I’m a proud graduate of Kaiser Permanente’s esteemed Movement Science Fellowship. This program honed my expertise in cutting-edge techniques for assessing joint kinetics and kinematics using 3D motion capture analysis and surface electromyography.

  2. Innovator at Kaiser Permanente:

    • Local Initiatives: At the Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center, I’ve led initiatives in real-time feedback through 3D motion capture analysis, fostering interdisciplinary care.

    • Regional Impact: Consulting for the KP Health Innovation Studio, I evaluate groundbreaking biomedical devices, including a robotic exoskeleton.

    • National Vision: My work extends to developing and implementing large data repositories for health optimization, innovative telehealth solutions, and forward-thinking interdisciplinary care models.

  3. Research Interests:

    • As a Rehabilitation and Movement Science Ph.D. student, my research inquiry focuses on complex pain, injury prevention, baseball biomechanics, and circadian and autonomic monitoring for peak performance and recovery.

    • I teach Sports Motion Analysis, Motivational Interviewing, and contribute to Pediatrics, Complex Pain Sciences, and clinical competency testing.

  4. Advanced Technologies:

    • My passions lie in movement analysis and sports performance. I seek to leverage state-of-the-art tools, including 3D movement analysis and musculoskeletal ultrasound, to optimize clinical and performance outcomes.
