Towards a new treatment for chronic low back pain patients

Marit van Weering

Abstract

It is hypothesized that the effectiveness of treatment of CLBP patients can be increased by (1) personalizing the treatment by providing treatments that enable individual goal setting and are based on the patients needs and capacities; (2) using technology to make the patient less dependent on the healthcare professional and give him more responsibility for his treatment outcome and; (3) making the treatment ambulant, so that it becomes possible to treat the patient in his own daily environment. Starting from this hypothesis, this thesis focuses on: the development and testing of an ambulant personalized treatment for patients with CLBP that uses technology to support the patient to improve his health status.
