profile-lars-avemarieI’m a physiotherapist, writer, internationally acclaimed lecturer, teacher, personal trainer, and clinical teacher. I have done lectures for Trust me I’m a Physiotherapist, Denkfysio, PhysioTutors, Incitus, Paincloud, San Diego Pain Summit, Emory & Henry College, European School of Osteopathy, The Association of Danish Physiotherapists, Mater Dei Hospital (University of Malta), University College Absalon, Metropolitan University College, Science 2 practice, ShakeUp, Kinesio Edu, FisioScience, Zefiro Formazione.

Currently, I work full-time as a physiotherapist at Skåne University Hospital, previously, I worked in regional rehabilitation. I have worked for over a decade full-time in the health industry as both a manager and an exercise and rehab specialist at the corporate level. I have a unique blend of knowledge about pain research, neuroscience, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, evidence-based medicine, science, and critical thinking.

My background story is that after attending a course on the topic of neuroscience and pain research, I started reading articles and textbooks on pain and neuroscience. After that, I began to read scientific research and reviews from international experts and pain researchers like Moseley, Melzack, Wall, O’Sullivan, Deyo, Booth, Zusman, Maher, KamperLoeser, and Louw. After 2 years of reading scientific papers while working with clients as a personal trainer, I began to share my experiences of modern pain research and science.

In my work of spreading information on modern pain research, I have gained a lot of international recognition, and my articles have been shared on a global level. Most reconsideration I have received for my two articles on pain research done by Dr. Lorimer Moseley, and Dr. Adriaan Louw, and my first international article, “Why Most People Are Wrong About Injuries and Pain”  has been shared more than 13,000 times on social media (Facebook).

Please feel free to contact me on social media with questions or further information about my lectures and courses.
