The overall goal of this project is to develop targeted and optimal non-pharmacological treatments to minimize central sensitization in chronic low back pain.


Criteria for subjects with chronic low back pain:

  • Low back pain more than 3 months
  • Age between 21-70 years
  • Taking pain medication such as opioid or others
  • Usual blood pressure less than 160/90 mmHg
  • No major diseases

Criteria for healthy subjects:

  • Ages of 21-70 years
  • No history of low back pain within past 6 months
  • No history of spinal surgery

This study requires only one visit (1.5-2.0 hours) to CORR Lab, and subjects are compensated with a $25 gift card for their participation.
