My research area is the course of low back pain (LBP), i.e. the development over time. To frequently measure a large number of patients, a novel approach to data collection is used: text messages and mobile phones. Weekly measurements allow a detailed study of course, on an individual and a group level. The clinical course can then be the basis of subgrouping patients.
The post-doc project will examine preventive interventions for recurrent and persistent LBP. Two frequently used models of care will be studied in a randomized study to evaluate the effect and cost-effectiveness.
