His scientific interests lie mostly in Physical therapy, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Chronic pain and Low back pain. His research in Physical therapy intersects with topics in Manual therapy, Randomized controlled trial and Sensitization. He interconnects Malaise, Threshold of pain, Exercise physiology and Fibromyalgia in the investigation of issues within Chronic fatigue syndrome.
His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research integrates issues from Visual analogue scale, Cognition, Activities of daily living, Step test and Reliability. The study incorporates disciplines such as Osteoarthritis, Anesthesia, Internal medicine and Biopsychosocial model in addition to Chronic pain. His Low back pain research includes themes of Quality of life, Physical examination, Neck pain and Neuroplasticity, Neuroscience.
Jo Nijs mainly focuses on Physical therapy, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Chronic pain, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and In patient. His work carried out in the field of Physical therapy brings together such families of science as Randomized controlled trial and Low back pain. His research brings together the fields of Neck pain and Low back pain.
In his work, Rheumatoid arthritis is strongly intertwined with Fibromyalgia, which is a subfield of Chronic fatigue syndrome. His Chronic pain research includes elements of Biopsychosocial model, Anesthesia and Osteoarthritis. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Alternative medicine, Cognition and Motor control.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Chronic pain, Physical therapy, Low back pain, Neuroscience and Internal medicine. His Chronic pain research incorporates elements of Rehabilitation, Osteoarthritis, Intervention, Fibromyalgia and Intensive care medicine. His research investigates the connection with Fibromyalgia and areas like Observational study which intersect with concerns in Physical medicine and rehabilitation.
His Physical therapy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Breast cancer and Randomized controlled trial. His study in Low back pain is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neuropathic pain, Conditioned pain modulation, Summation and Neck pain. While the research belongs to areas of Neuropathic pain, Jo Nijs spends his time largely on the problem of Audiology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Chronic fatigue syndrome.
Jo Nijs spends much of his time researching Chronic pain, Low back pain, Internal medicine, Physical therapy and Neuroscience. His studies in Chronic pain integrate themes in fields like Clinical trial, Systematic review, MEDLINE, Manual therapy and Intensive care medicine. His Low back pain study combines topics in areas such as Meta-analysis, Quantitative sensory testing, Summation and Quality of life.
His study in Internal medicine concentrates on Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue syndrome and Confidence interval. As a member of one scientific family, Jo Nijs mostly works in the field of Fibromyalgia, focusing on Randomized controlled trial and, on occasion, Pain catastrophizing and Dose. His work on Rehabilitation as part of general Physical therapy study is frequently linked to Problem list, bridging the gap between disciplines.
