Chronic back pain prevalence at small area level in England - the design and validation of a 2-stage static spatial microsimulation model (2023)
Journal Article

Spatially disaggregated estimates provide valuable insights into the nature of a disease. They highlight inequalities, aid public health planning and identify avenues for further research. Spatial microsimulation is advantageous in that it can be use...

The interrater and test–retest reliability of 3 modalities of quantitative sensory testing in healthy adults and people with chronic low back pain or rheumatoid arthritis (2023)
Journal Article

Introduction: Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) modalities used to assess central pain mechanisms require different protocols in people with different musculoskeletal conditions. Objectives: We aimed to explore the possible effects of musculo...

COVID-19 in a Dutch Nursing Home: A Longitudinal Retrospective Care-Home-Level Case Study on Infection Rate, Survival Rate, and Daily Functioning (2023)
Journal Article

During the pandemic, nursing homes in the Netherlands were heavily affected by COVID-19. This study assesses the impact of COVID-19 on infection rate, survival rate, and daily functioning over the course of two years among residents of a nursing home...

Gut-joint axis in knee synovitis: gut fungal dysbiosis and altered fungi–bacteria correlation network identified in a community-based study (2023)
Journal Article

Objectives: Knee synovitis is a highly prevalent and potentially curable condition for knee pain; however, its pathogenesis remains unclear. We sought to assess the associations of the gut fungal microbiota and the fungi–bacteria correlation network...

Management of acute cervical spinal cord injury in the non‐specialist intensive care unit: a narrative review of current evidence (2023)
Journal Article

Each year approximately one million people suffer spinal cord injury, which has significant physical, psychosocial and economic impacts on patients and their families. Spinal cord rehabilitation centres are a well-established part of the care pathway...

Two-week break in methotrexate treatment and COVID-19 vaccine response: a prospective, open label, two-arm parallel-group, multicentre, superiority, randomised controlled trial (2023)
Journal Article

Background Methotrexate is the first-line treatment for immune-mediated inflammatory diseases and reduces vaccine-induced immunity. We evaluated if a 2-week interruption of methotrexate treatment immediately after COVID-19 booster vaccination improv...

Association between quadriceps tendon elasticity and neuromuscular control in individuals with knee osteoarthritis. (2023)
Journal Article

Background: Knee osteoarthritis is a complex condition with established risk factors such as female sex, increasing age and body mass index, reduced quadriceps muscle strength and knee injury. Despite known associated risks, the role and behaviour of... Read More about Association between quadriceps tendon elasticity and neuromuscular control in individuals with knee osteoarthritis..
