Centre of Precision Rehabilitation for Spinal Pain (CPR Spine) consists of a multi-disciplinary team with a common aim of identifying patient-specific interventions for people with spinal pain, overcoming the common “one size fits all” approach to treatment which usually falls short of success. Our research incorporates comprehensive investigations of people with spinal pain, taking into consideration the multidimensional nature of their pain, to inform targeted interventions and novel strategies tailored to the individual person.

We have established a new MRes research programme focussed on spinal pain which builds on the existing success of our international market-leading MSc Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy programme. CPR Spine has established a Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) group and we host regular events for the public to share our research findings and obtain input to shape the design of our future studies.
