Volunteers Needed for a Low Back Pain Study

Volunteers Needed for a Low Back Pain Study

Do you have patients that have experienced chronic low back pain for 3 months or more?

Are they aged between 18-65 years?

Would they like help to identify those aspects of their low back pain that are most troubling to them, and explore solutions to these problems?

A study being undertaken into low back pain requires volunteers. Associate Professor Lorraine Smith is conducting a study looking at the long term management of low back pain.  This study involves a free consultation with a senior physiotherapist and a voucher will be provided at the completion of the study for the participant. The study is being conducted at Camperdown and Lidcombe campuses as well as St George, Sutherland and St Vincent’s Hospitals. If you have patients who are interested in participating please contact:

Tania Gardner (PhD candidate, Senior Physiotherapist)

This study has ethics approval:

The University of Sydney HREC :  2014/572
