Article
Despite being a first-line treatment recommendation, there is uncertainly for how exercise helps people with chronic low back pain. We designed this study to examine how exercise might help people with chronic low back pain by following a large community sample for 1-year. Qualitative questionnaires and self-report measures were collected every 3-m...

Objective: To explore the effectiveness of a modified fear hierarchy on measuring improvements in movement-associated fear in chronic low back pain. Methods: A modified 3-item fear hierarchy was created and implemented based on principles of graded exposure. This study was an exploratory analysis of the modified 3-item fear hierarchy from a larg...
Article
Background Contemporary management of chronic low back pain involves combined exercise and pain education. Currently, there is a gap in the literature for whether any exercise mode better pairs with pain education. The purpose of this study was to compare general callisthenic exercise with a powerlifting style programme, both paired with consistent...
Article
Background To investigate the efficacy of targeted education on clinical decision-making in accredited exercise physiologists. Methods Fifty accredited exercise physiologists undertook a 4-hour targeted education session aimed to demonstrate why the biopsychosocial model is better suited to the management of chronic low back pain than the biomedic...
Thesis
Full-text available
Chronic low back pain carries a large global burden of disease. Currently, exercise is recognised as a key treatment for chronic low back pain. However, management of chronic low back pain presents exercise-based practitioners with numerous, confusing, and conflicting treatment options. Broadly, these options can be classified under biomedical or b...
Article
Objectives: The fear-avoidance model is used to explain pain related disability and design targeted interventions for people with chronic low back pain. While treatment engagement is critical, it is unknown how treatment moderates the fear-avoidance model. Methods: This study examined whether pathways within the fear-avoidance model were moderat...
Article
Study design: Cross-sectional survey. Objective: This study surveyed the attitudes and beliefs of Physiotherapists and Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) toward chronic low back pain (CLBP), in Australia. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of biomedical and biopsychosocial attitudes and beliefs toward CLBP on clinical...
Article
Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of individualization of an exercise program on the buy-in received from chronic low back pain (CLBP) patients. Methods: Participants were randomized to 8 weeks of an individualized (IEP) or general exercise program (GEP). All participants were required to attend one 1:1 session per wee...
Thesis
Full-text available
Abstract Background Exercise is the first step recommendation for chronic low back pain (CLBP). However, the best approach for practitioners prescribing exercise to CLBP patients is unclear, and the efficacy of exercise in reducing pain-related disability is debated. Moreover, it is unknown if any particular mode of exercise or accompanying belief...
