Tara is working to assess the utility of wearable sensors in measuring pain-related disability (movement quality) in patients with knee osteoarthritis that also have lower back pain. She will also explore the association between movement and pain-related beliefs and emotions in individuals with knee OA and examine how movement, beliefs and emotions change over time relative to each other, in individuals with knee OA undergoing a physiotherapy intervention. She hopes to develop an intervention that can target all these factors, to enable better long-term pain and disability outcomes in this population.
