Jordan Miller, MSc PT
Jordan is a registered physiotherapist with an interest in all areas of persistent pain, including neck pain. He is currently completing his PhD at McMaster University investigating treatment of persistent non-cancer pain. Specifically, he is interested in the effectiveness of a treatment strategy that includes teaching people with pain about the physiology of pain and about self-management strategies to assist in reducing pain and resuming participation in activities that are important to each person. Jordan is also a member of the Cervical Overview Group, who complete systematic reviews on the treatment of neck pain. He understands it is important that not only clinicians understand the evidence regarding treatment options, but also the people who are experiencing neck pain. People can only make an informed decision on their own health care if provided with the evidence necessary to make that decision.
