Personal profile


In 2015 I defended a thesis on analysis and re-learning in sensorimotor control following joint injury. We developed a new, quantifiable scoring-instrument for the assessment of altered movement patterns after knee-injury and a new way to assess muscle activation during movements using electromyography, EMG, and 2D video. In these studies we concluded that altered movement patterns were more frequent in individuals with joint-injury, that the new test was reliable and valid in quantifying these patterns and that deviations found in muscle activity patterns - manifested as altered strategies in sensorimotor control - might contribute to the observed patterns. In my continued projects, I work together with associate professor Marcelo Rivano, associate professor Anna Jöud and post doc Elisabeth Bondesson. We study function, activities and participation in patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain; in specific the long-term outcome after personalized, physiotherapist-led rehabilitation, the predictive influence of baseline variables on rehabilitation outcome, patients’ experiences of physiotherapist-led rehabilitation and the assessments of sensorimotor control and movement patterns before and after adjusted training in patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain.

I am also a clinician, working as a Registered Physiotherapist, specialized in Orthopedics’ and in Pain and pain rehabilitation at Department of Neurosurgery and Pain rehabilitation at Skane University Hospital, assessing and rehabilitating patients with chronic muskuloskelettal pain. Since 2015 I conduct an ‘Evidence Club’ together with my physiotherapist-colleagues and have worked on developing networks, cooperation and education on chronic pain in for example Primary care at the ‘Center for knowledge – Pain’, run by Region Skåne. Each semester I educate physiotherapists at Lund University in rehabilitation on musculoskeletal injury and pain.
