I graduated in 1972 at Lund University and I took my PhD in 1998 in the field of neurosurgery. My dissertation was about neck disorder about its consequences (neurological symptoms, pain, dizziness, headache) and different treatment strategies. Worked as a physioterapist in the department of neurosurgery for 39 years before I went to Lund University as a senior lecturer. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in pain and neurology.

My areas of interest are questions about neck symptoms in people with spinal cord injury, whiplash, disc rupture and muscular neck pain, as well as consequences of disabilities (such as pain, dizziness, balance disturbances, muscle tension, headache etc.) as well as evaluation of different treatment methods.

I collaborate with researchers in Lund, Gothenburg, Linköping, Stockholm about nerve root depression in the neck, neck pain and various treatment methods like physical exercise and Qigong, and participate in projects on dizziness and balans in stroke patients.


In the physioterapy program, I am course coordinator in Clinical Education (Hospital Care, Rehabilitation, Clinical education and interprofessional learning) and Functional Ability with Pathological States and Injuries in the Cardiorespiratory Systems as well as Bachelor Thesis in Physiotherapy. Engaged in courses on patient safety and improvement skills and are protection representative and represents physiotherapy the teachers of the board.
