Professor Lorimer Moseley is a physiotherapist and pain scientist. He has authored 340 papers and five books. He has a long-standing interest in using contemporary and innovative methods to ‘translate’ contemporary pain science into concepts and language that clinicians and patients can both understand and then integrate into their own decision making. His contribution to the pain field has been recognised by the University of South Australia’s first Doctor of Science award, honorary fellowship of the Australian Faculty of Pain Medicine, Australia & New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, honoured membership of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and awards from government or community groups in 14 countries.
