Participants wanted for low-back pain research

A group of physical therapy doctoral students is recruiting participants 18 years of age or older with chronic low-back pain lasting longer than three consecutive months. The study will 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, subjects will complete an eight-week home exercise program that will be monitored via e-mail. The exercise program will not require external resistance, such as weights and resistance bands. Participants will fill out one questionnaire prior to starting the program and three questionnaires eight weeks later. If placed in the control group, participants will complete a survey at the beginning of the program and two surveys eight weeks later.

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