Dr Manasi Mittinty
In August 2017, Dr Manasi Mittinty obtained her PhD in Medicine, entitled ‘Vitamin D deficiency and its role in chronic nonspecific musculoskeletal pain.’ She examined the role of vitamin D (deficiency and supplementation) in chronic nonspecific musculoskeletal pain, from primary health care and patient perspective. She also investigated the intricate role play between psychological and social factors on persistent pain. In her post-doctoral researcher role at the Indigenous oral health Unit and Adelaide Nursing School, she is involved in the LISTEN and KT project and is also investigating the mechanistic pathways by which the psychological and social factors impact patient recovery.
Manasi M Mittinty is a research associate in the Adelaide Nursing School and Indigenous Oral Health Unit under the mentorship of Prof Gillian Harvey and Prof Lisa Jamieson. She completed her PhD in Medicine at the University of Adelaide, where her research focused on examining the role of vitamin D deficiency on chronic nonspecific musculoskeletal pain.
During her PhD studies, she broadened her research interests to include pain and pain education, patient-provider relationship and patient expected outcomes.
Currently, her primary research interest is investigating role of fear of pain and coping styles on patients’ expectations of recovery, using FOP-III Questionnaire, and to develop innovative approaches to treat chronic pain patients.
In addition, Manasi is also working on Knowledge Translation Framework and LISTEN project under the mentorship of Prof Harvey.
