Academic interests

My scientific interest is primarily related to musculoskeletal disorders; their underlying mechanisms and how they are related to functioning. Over the last years I have become increasingly interested in the underlying mechanisms of recovery through rehabilitation and treatment. Currently, most of my time is spent on a large project (FYSIOPRIM) investigating several aspects of musculoskeletal disorders and treatment in primary care. My research spans from physiological mechanisms, through studies of effectiveness and health economics, to studies of methodological properties.

We are currently establishing a large database based on a comprehensive electronic data capture from patients in primary care. This will allow us to analyse clinical trajectories through and following their treatment period. We will analyse prognostic factors for improvement, as well as factors having an impact on the clinical course.
