The strategic aim of the research efforts at NIKKB is to continue to contribute new knowledge in the musculoskeletal field by focusing on solving specific challenges at the level of both the patient and society, specifically:
- Patients with musculoskeletal problems experience different clinical courses, which is why we will continue our work to establish ‘customised’ interventions based on new knowledge.
- Our ambition is to focus on implementation research where new knowledge about the barriers to, and methods for, promoting the systematic application of research findings is further developed and embedded in daily clinical practice.
- At NIKKB, our research has always sought to understand the life trajectories of musculoskeletal disease. This will still apply. We will continue to study these clinical courses in order to develop insights that are useful and practical in prevention and treatment.
To meet these strategic priorities, the following research areas will be the principal focus up to the end of 2022:
- Patient profiles & differentiated care
- Implementation research & knowledge translation
- Musculoskeletal heath from a life course perspective with a special focus on spinal health

CARL Fellows work on joint projects 24/7 – literally. Due to the geographical grouping of the fellows at least one fellow is always ready to work on a project at a given time during the day.

Back pain is annoying to many people but for some it can have serious consequences. The risk of being away from work due to sickness increases when one has to carry out physically demanding work, and with that comes increased risk of losing one’s job as the consequence of having to go on sick leave. For about 10 % of everyone, who develops lower back pain, the pain becomes chronic, rendering them unfit for work with subsequent sick leave and unemployment in the end.
In most cases it is impossible to determine one single reason for back pain; the…
Since Monday, the 13 young CARL fellows have been fully occupied with the first of three summits.
The summit is held at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in Odense, Denmark. It is an inspiring mix of talks, workshops and social features, intended to bring the researchers together as a strong group within research in the chiropractic field. During the summit, the researchers have had presentations from a long line of researchers in management in theory and practice, how to construct a career as a researcher and how to become a good Head of Research.
They have also…
