Research areas

Prevention and treatment of joint injuries and musculoskeletal pain conditions such as osteoarthritis

Jonas Bloch Thorlund´s (JBT) research mainly focus on investigating if less invasive treatments (e.g. exercise therapy) can replace or reduce the use of treatments such as pain medication and surgery that carry higher risk of harms for joint injuries and musculoskeltal pain.

Current main research projects:

  • JBT is the principal investigator (PI) of Knee Arthroscopy Cohort Southern Denmark – KACS. The aim of the KACS cohort is to investigate the natural time course of patient perceived pain and function after meniscectomy with particular focus on the dependence of the different types of meniscus tears.
  • JBT is the senior investigator on the Danish Rct on Exercise versus Meniscal Surgery for young adults - the DREAM study. 
  • Currently conducting and planing several studies on the use of opioids for osteoarthritis pain and the potential of exercise therapy to reduce opioid use.

Curriculum

JBT is employed as an Associate Professor in the Research Unit for Musculoskeletal Function and Physiotherapy at the Dept. of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics and is also affiliated to the Research Unit of General Practice at the Dept. of Public Health. He has a background in Sports Science and Health (MSc) and defended his PhD in 2011.

JBT holds several competitive grants from Independent Research Fund Denmark and he is an Associate Editor for BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders. In addition, he perform numerous ad-hoc reviews of grants and for scientific journals including for top journals such as BMJ, Ann Intern Med, Ann Rheum Dis, Osteoarthritis & Cartilage and British Journal of Sports Medicine.
