  • Hello!
    I'm a doctoral student at Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and
    Societ (NVS) - Division of Family medicine and Primary care.
    I'm a physiotherapist and a pain specialist, with my clinical background in
    the primary care since 2013.
    You can follow my PhD-journey on my Instagram: @doktorandpeter [1]
    I'm fascinated by our bodies adaptability and the connection between
    psychology and biology. I'm passionate about how physical activity can be
    used in both prevention and treatment of diseases and pain conditions.
    Without movement, there is no life.
