Om mig

Jag heter Mari Lundberg och är fysioterapeut och docent i fysioterapi. Mitt forskningsområde är smärta, med särskilt fokus hur vi får människor att vara fysiskt aktiva trots sin smärta.  

Klinisk erfarenhet

Jag är specialist inom ortopedisk kirurgi och har arbetat kliniskt inom primärvård, ortopedisk sluten och öppenvård, reumatologi och idrottsmedicin.


Jag har min fördjupning inom området smärta och utöver min specialistkompetens i ortopedisk kirurgi har jag också en kandidatexamen i psykologi.


Min passion inom forskning, klinik och utbildning är att försöka förstå hur vi kan få människor att vara fysiskt aktiva trots att de har ont eller är rädda.

Mitt huvudområde är smärta, med särskilt fokus på rörelserädsla.
