Volunteers Eligible for Free Care in Research Study on Chronic Low Back Pain
If you experience chronic low back pain, you are not alone. Approximately 85% of the U.S. population will experience back pain at some point in their life. If you suffer from chronic low back pain, you may be eligible for free care in exchange for your participation in a research study.
Researchers at National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) are conducting the study and need volunteers. Each eligible patient who chooses to participate in this research study will undergo a low back examination and receive custom-made shoe orthotics. In addition, some patients may also receive chiropractic manipulation. All exams and treatments received as part of the study are at no cost to the subject. If you are 18 years of age or older and you have had low back pain for a duration of three months or longer, you may be a candidate for this research study.
