The main aims of the research group ‘spine’ are to:

  • Identify underlying peripheral and central mechanisms in the development or maintenance of low back and neck pain
  • Integrate experimental and clinical research to evaluate structural (CT, MRI, ultrasound) and functional characteristics
    (EMG, mfMRI, ultrasound) of spinal muscles
  • Evaluate clinical interventions in patients with low back and neck pain
