For more than 20 years, Dr. Sindelar has played an integral role within CHSP and has served in numerous capacities during her time at OHIO, most recently as the program director and an associate professor within the Division of Physical Therapy.

Sindelar’s research has played a vital role in examining the structure/function of joint interactions using the TMJ method and has served as an animal model for degenerative joint disease. She has also assessed the effects of the long-term control of periodontal disease via an innovative treatment technique on inflammatory markers and disease outcomes.

Sindelar graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy from Washington University in 1975. She received her PhD in bioengineering from the University of Washington in 2000.
