Anbjørn Ree

I am a physiotherapist with nearly 20 years of clinical experience. I have mainly worked with people in pain, but I also treat people with various neurological conditions, such as MS and Parkinson's Disease. My main clinical interest relates to how clinical communication affects the patients' beliefs and attitudes towards their illness and condition through words that positively or negatively affect the patients' perception of the condition.
