Students seek participants to study back pain

Five students in Ph.D. program for physical therapy area looking for participants 50 years of age or older with chronic low back pain. Your participation may help physical therapists understand and treat chronic low back pain in a technological age using at-home therapy services.

If chosen to participate and are placed in the experimental group, you complete an eight-week home exercise program that will be monitored via e-mail.

If you are placed in the control group, your only responsibility will be to complete one survey at the beginning of the program and two surveys eight weeks later.

If interested, please complete the survey below. It will only take about 10 minutes. After returning the survey, you will receive an email with further information.

Your participation is greatly appreciated, voluntary, and your responses will remain confidential. If you have questions or concerns, please email Austin Foley at
