In everyday clinical practice, I meet patients with chronic pain and comorbidities, since pain is seldom the only health condition. Pain management needs a biopsychosocial perspective and patients with comorbidities may benefit from a patient-tailored approach.
My research is based on a biopsychosocial view of pain and is focused on two areas:
- The effects of multimodal pain rehabilitation. I investigate rehabilitation effects on patients with chronic pain and obesity using a quality register for interdisciplinary pain rehabilitation.
- Pain in older adults. I investigate pain aspects in population-based studies as well as research on rehabilitation in vulnerable older patients.
