Unravelling chronic low-back Pain: The clinical value of movement variability

Samenvatting

Low-back pain is a widely prevalent condition causing a high burden of disease globally. Unfortunately, effective treatment options are scarce. Literature suggests movement variability is often reduced in patients with chronic low-back pain, presumably due to perceived or actual risks of pain provocation and loss of movement control. This research project aims to investigate the role of movement variability in low-back pain, to develop clinically applicable methods for assessing movement variability, and to evaluate the relationship between movement variability and important psychological barriers for recovery. Finally, the viability of increasing movement variability as a physiotherapeutic treatment strategy will be explored.
