Dr. Wideman's research broadly aims to help researchers and clinicians better understand and manage disability associated with musculoskeletal pain. Toward this goal, his research has focused on exploring the biopsychosocial risk factors for persistent pain-related disability and studying interventions that target these factors. His past research has helped shed light on how different psychological risk factors (e.g. fear, catastrophizing, depression) influence the trajectory of recovery following pain rehabilitation and how rehabilitation professionals can better address these factors within their clinical practice. His current research investigates why certain individuals with musculoskeletal pain are more sensitive to physical activity and how this increased sensitivity influences engagement and response to activity-based rehabilitation programs.
