Abby L. Cheng, MD

Assistant Professor

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

I have clinical expertise in the conservative management of musculoskeletal conditions, and my long-term research goal is to optimize the conservative management of chronic musculoskeletal pain by addressing biopsychosocial comorbidities as part of a person-centered comprehensive treatment plan. I am especially interested in patients with hip and lumbopelvic disorders. I am also developing a research program to study and optimize musculoskeletal care delivered through an interprofessional, lifestyle medicine based approach which incorporates mobile health and telemedicine technology to improve access and patient activation.
