Ebersole, Kyle

Associate Professor, College of Health Sciences

Kyle Ebersole conducts research pertinent to expanding the scientific knowledge base that informs the physiological basis for injury prevention, re-conditioning, strength training, and physiological performance across a continuum of sport and occupational athletes.

His recent and ongoing research projects include exploring the application of heart rate variability as a measure of recovery and injury state in baseball pitchers; development of indices that discriminate between injured and uninjured muscle; influence of massage on muscle function and the autonomic nervous system; application of movement screens in the evaluation of athlete performance; examination of the physiological markers of firefighter performance; and development of performance screening tools for firefighters.

Ebersole is a Licensed Athletic Trainer and has earned certifications from the National Academy in Sports Medicine as a Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES).
