Researchers seek participants for chronic low back pain study

A group of students in the doctor of physical therapy program at Wichita State University is looking for participants 18 years of age or older with chronic low back pain. Your participation may help physical therapists understand how to treat chronic low back pain in a technological age using at-home therapy services.

If you qualify for this research and would be willing to participate,  please fill out the screening survey below to ensure all the criteria for our research is met. Once you have completed the survey, you will receive an email with further information within five to seven business days.

During this study, participants will perform an eight-week-long home exercise program  monitored via e-mail. The exercise program will not require external resistance (weights, resistance bands, etc.).

Participants will fill out a questionnaire prior to the beginning of the program and three questionnaires after completing the program. 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 after completing the program

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