About Jeannie F. Bailey, PhD

Jeannie Bailey, PhD, has over a decade of interdisciplinary research experience in orthopaedic health outcomes focused on lumbar spinal conditions and low back pain. Dr. Bailey received her bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and her master’s and doctorate degrees from the University of Washington. She performed post-doctorate research at UCSF in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Her research explores novel methods for identifying clinical-relevant biomechanical phenotypes and exploring potential interactive mechanisms between separate musculoskeletal pain phenotypes. As part of the Musculoskeletal Research Consortium (METRiCS), she is actively developing, testing, and deploying precision-based digital health technology to enhance both clinician and patient engagement in treatment and recovery. She is jointly appointed within the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences.

Current studies:

  1. Spaceflight-induced low back pain and spinal instability
  2. In-clinic biomechanical assessments and uncovering pathological movement behaviors
  3. Predicting risk for post-operative mechanical complications
  4. Muscle quality and biomechanical dysfunction
  5. Functional phenotypes for pain from real world data


She loves coffee and given the opportunity to drink coffee, she will gladly meet with you and tell you more about her research and other opportunities in musculoskeletal health at UCSF.
