Clinical research in Neck-Shoulder disorders and Generalised Joint Hypermobility

This research is focused on development of clinical outcome methods, identification and treatment of joint injuries and neuromuscular dysfunctions in patients with neck-shoulder problems and subjects with Generalised Joint Hypermobility. 

NECK-problems:

Ongoing research involves method development and an RCT-study with treatment of patients with chronic neck pain, both with and without a whiplash trauma. This is project is carried through as a PhD-project  with 5 adjuncted master theses, and with an international cooperation partner.

SHOULDER-problems:

In the area of shoulder problems 2 PhD-projects will study clinical and patient reported outcomes, in addition to the effect of non-operative treatment concepts in

a multi-center study, consisting of 2 PhD- and 1 postdoctor-project, 6 adjuncted master theses  and 2 international cooperation projects.

GENERAL HYPERMOBILITET:

In the area of Generalised Joint Hypermobility (GJH) risk factors for development of pain and reduced physical function will be studied in children and adults with GJH, from 3 PhD-projects, 7 adjuncted master theses, and 3 international cooperation projects.
