Thorp, Jacob Clinical Associate Professor


Professional Interests
My clinical interests encompass the rehabilitation and manual interventions of orthopedic injuries specifically related to the spine and temporomandibular joints. This includes the physical therapy management of chronic pain disorders, such as fibromyalgia, which can be related to spine and TMJ dysfunctions. I also have a vested interest in industrial rehabilitation including functional capacity evaluations and work conditioning.


research overview

  • My research interests include to kinetic and kinematic relationship of the temporomandibular joint with the cervical spine. I am also interested in the reliability and validity of sacroiliac joint provocation testing and lumbar mobility testing as it relates to physical therapy diagnosis and prognosis.
