Abstract:Nonspecific chronic low back pain (CLBP) is generally approached from a biopsychosocial perspective. A variety of multidisciplinary treatments has been developed aimed at improving activity and participation of subjects with CLBP, but effectiveness is limited. One of the explanations could be the heterogeneity of the CLBP population, which makes it unlikely that all patients will benefit from the same generic treatment. As such, more insight is needed in the role of underlying biopsychosocial mechanisms in subjects with CLBP. Knowledge of these aspects is expected to provide a better match of treatment to the patient’s characteristics and improve the effectiveness of multidisciplinary treatments. The main aim of this thesis is to gain insight in these mechanisms, both in relation to treatment outcome, as in differences with respect to asymptomatic controls.
