Centre of Precision Rehabilitation for Spinal Pain (CPR Spine), University of Birmingham

CPR Spine was established at the University of Birmingham in 2016, bringing together cutting edge technologies with multidisciplinary expertise (physiotherapy, osteopathy, anatomy, neurophysiology, and bioengineering) to develop our understanding of personalised rehabilitation for individuals with spinal pain. Effective precision rehabilitation enables improved effectiveness (clinical and cost) as it identifies which patients to target with rehabilitation, when and how to target them; and therefore enables more effective use of rehabilitation resources. 

CPR Spine includes a research facility with state of the art facilities including systems for human movement analysis, quantitative sensory testing, electromyography, elastography, ultrasonography and electroencephalography.

CPR Spine hosts the MRes Spinal Pain and MSc Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy programmes providing students with specialist teaching and research skills in musculoskeletal rehabilitation and spinal pain. Students are able to take advantage of studying within a thriving research community comprising internationally renowned musculoskeletal educators and researchers, research fellows and students.
