My area of research focuses on Musculoskeletal (MSK) Disorders and MSK pain and specifically jaw pain, neck pain, and headaches. These conditions affect most commonly women. I am interested in understanding how musculoskeletal chronic pain affects women and also to determine the best treatment strategies to manage chronic MSK to improve women’s health and quality of life. Thus the information gathered from this line of research will directly have implications on women suffering from chronic MSK pain.
