Research group Complex Pain

    The research group contributes to the improvement of care for people with complex pain. Although we learn more and more about the phenomenon of pain and the number of treatments is increasing, it still seems difficult to help people with complex pain in a good way. Many people are dissatisfied with the help they are offered.

    The 'complex pain' research group looks at which biopsychosocial 'mechanisms' play a role in complex pain experience. In addition, research is conducted into the analgesic effects of physiotherapeutic treatments, with special attention to the use of 'motion'. The research group also devotes much attention to ways to successfully implement practice innovations in metropolitan care practices where care providers attend to people with diverse socio-cultural backgrounds visit. For this purpose, an Academic Workshop for Physical Therapy is being set up in cooperation with care practices for people with complex pain.
