Spine and chronic pain unit

We are investigating patho-mechanisms of chronic low back pain and degenerative spine disorders in close collaboration with our colleagues from spin surgery, rehabilitation, radiology and anesthesiology.

We are currently performing studies on the role of facet joint  osteoarthritis in chronic back pain and spinal stenosis in our laboratory. One of our focuses are neurogenic inflammation and ectopic calcification in facet joints as potential therapeutic target.

In the newly organized multimodal pain program we analyze different aspects of chronic back pain including disturbed sleep and investigate the efficacy of different new treatment options.
