Dr. Clinton Wutzke is an assistant professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Science. He is a rehabilitation scientist with extensive experience in postural control and gait in unimpaired and pathological populations.

Dr. Wutzke earned his Bachelor of Arts and Science in kinesiology and psychology from the University of Lethbridge (Canada) and his master’s degree in exercise science from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He then spent four years as the laboratory manager of the Rehabilitation Science Research Laboratory in the Division of Physical Therapy at Creighton University. Dr. Wutzke then pursued his doctorate in human movement science from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After completion of his doctoral degree, he completed a Polytrauma/Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Research Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Washington, DC.

Dr. Wutzke is interested in the influence of sensorimotor control on postural control and walking in both unimpaired individuals and clinical populations. He has investigated changes in walking and balance as it relates to healthy aging as well as in pathological populations including people with lower extremity amputations, stroke, peripheral neuropathy, and traumatic brain injury.
