Biographical details

Dr Mousavi’s research involves the study of trunk neuromuscular system, with special emphasis on trunk performance and motor control during multidirectional activities and tracking tasks. The study of burden of low back pain, patient-reported outcome measurement, and implementing evidence-based researches to practice with emphasis on biopsychosocial management of patients with low back pain is another interest.
