Center for Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome Research Lab Team
Our multidisciplinary research team consists of physicians, nurse practitioners, physical/occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers, research assistants/coordinators and music/art therapists with the shared goal of advancing treatments for pediatric chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Dr. Gmuca seeks to enhance the care of children with chronic musculoskeletal pain. Her current research addresses amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome, which is a major public health issue because of its high prevalence, related socioeconomic burden, and associated risk of opioid exposure. Dr. Gmuca’s work aims to identify innovative strategies to improve long-term treatment outcomes for this patient population.
