Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy

Peter O'Sullivan mainly focuses on Physical therapy, Low back pain, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Lumbar and Electromyography. Peter O'Sullivan does research in Physical therapy, focusing on Range of motion specifically. His Low back pain study incorporates themes from Back pain, Clinical trial, Central nervous system disease and Manual therapy.

The concepts of his Physical medicine and rehabilitation study are interwoven with issues in Psychological intervention, Pelvis, Cognition, Reliability and Spondylolisthesis. He interconnects STRIDE and Sitting in the investigation of issues within Lumbar. His Electromyography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Isometric exercise and Abdominal muscles.

His most cited work include:

  • Evaluation of Specific Stabilizing Exercise in the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain With Radiologic Diagnosis of Spondylolysis or Spondylolisthesis (928 citations)
  • Diagnosis and classification of chronic low back pain disorders: maladaptive movement and motor control impairments as underlying mechanism. (644 citations)
  • Masterclass. Lumbar segmental ‘instability’: clinical presentation and specific stabilizing exercise management (431 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Peter O'Sullivan spends much of his time researching Physical therapy, Low back pain, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Back pain and Lumbar. Peter O'Sullivan has included themes like Psychological intervention, Randomized controlled trial, Sitting, Biopsychosocial model and Cohort in his Physical therapy study. His Low back pain study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Psychosocial, Pain catastrophizing, Cognition and Cross-sectional study.

His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research incorporates themes from Pelvic girdle pain and Motor control. His Back pain research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nursing and Rehabilitation. His Lumbar study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Range of motion, Lumbar spine and Biomechanics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical therapy (65.53%)
  • Low back pain (49.69%)
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (29.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Low back pain (49.69%)
  • Physical therapy (65.53%)
  • Biopsychosocial model (11.18%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Low back pain, Physical therapy, Biopsychosocial model, Back pain and Cognition. His Low back pain study combines topics in areas such as Psychological intervention, Rehabilitation, Physical medicine and rehabilitation and Medical education. The Physical medicine and rehabilitation study combines topics in areas such as Osteoarthritis, Lumbar, Lumbar spine and Sitting.

Peter O'Sullivan works on Physical therapy which deals in particular with Musculoskeletal pain. As a member of one scientific family, Peter O'Sullivan mostly works in the field of Biopsychosocial model, focusing on Coping and, on occasion, Clinical trial and Epidemiology. His Cognition research includes themes of Chronic low back pain, Functional therapy and Quality of life.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • What does best practice care for musculoskeletal pain look like? Eleven consistent recommendations from high-quality clinical practice guidelines: systematic review (110 citations)
  • Cognitive functional therapy in patients with non-specific chronic low back pain-a randomized controlled trial 3-year follow-up. (26 citations)
  • Cognitive functional therapy compared with a group-based exercise and education intervention for chronic low back pain: a multicentre randomised controlled trial (RCT) (20 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Psychiatry

Peter O'Sullivan focuses on Low back pain, Psychological intervention, Biopsychosocial model, Physical therapy and Cognition. His studies in Low back pain integrate themes in fields like Clinical psychology and Risk factor. His Psychological intervention research incorporates elements of Psychosocial, Psychotherapist, Spinal pain, Sit-up and Sitting.

His research in Biopsychosocial model intersects with topics in Nursing, Back pain and Osteoarthritis. His study in Physical therapy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Manual therapy, Randomized controlled trial and Evidence-based practice. Peter O'Sullivan studied Cognition and Chronic low back pain that intersect with Intervention.
