The research aim of this lab is to understand the mechanisms that underlie the change in movement in response to pain.

Understanding the mechanisms that underlie the change in movement in response to pain is a critical step in the development of new rehabilitation strategies, and improving outcomes for people living with musculoskeletal pain. With the combined skills of a strong international collaborative network, the lab aims to bring us closer to understanding the complexities of motor adaptation during pain.

Dr Tucker maintains a strong collaboration with members of the NHMRC CCRE-Spine, with the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at UQ.
