A physical educator by training, Christian Larivière completed his doctoral studies in clinical sciences at Université de Sherbrooke in 1999. He had a post-doctoral fellowship in biomedical sciences from 1998 to 2000 at Université de Montréal and has been a biomechanics researcher at the IRSST since 2001. His main research interests are the development of tools for assessing neuromuscular functions of the trunk and of interventions for improving lumbar spine stability in worker populations with low back pain. With his collaborators, he works on projects that incorporate the psychological factors associated with chronic pain in order to better document the effects of treatment and study patient adherence to treatment. He has published over 120 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals.
