Morten Høgh (Hoegh) graduated from King's College London (MSc Pain: Science & Society) in 2012 after having spend more than a decade as clinician, teacher and business developer. Morten has a background in physical therapy, martial arts and the army. He has been working primarily in private practice since he graduated as a physical therapist in 1999. Morten's interest for pain science began as he was finishing his diploma in manual therapy (IFOMT) and sports physical therapy (RISPT). Having heard only of the biomedical model and understanding pain as a symptom (caused by tissue damage) he was intrigued by patient's who had pain for no (apparent) reason. He was introduced to modern pain science via NOI Group and the book Explain Pain (by whom he later was accredited as instructor) and soon found several other sources of inspiration, including Louis Gifford's work. But it was only after he started his masters in London, where he was lucky enough to he educated by Mick Thacker (former colleague with Pat Wall), that he really started to appreciate the fields of neuroscience, consciousness and science. On a professionel level Morten is dedicated to understanding pain - from a phenomenological as well as from a neuroscientific perspective. This includes working as a clinician from his base in Aarhus (DK), writing a blog (www.videnomsmerter.dk), participating in conferences, charing the Danish Society for Pain & Physical Therapy as well as finding time to educate health care professionals in accordance with the IASP professional curricula. Morten is born in 1973 and married to Lene (since 2000) with whom he has three kids.
