Have you recently recovered from an episode of low back pain?

The University of Sydney is conducting a trial to test two promising approaches to back pain prevention.

What's involved?

Participation in this study will not cost you anything.

Participants will be randomly allocated to one of two treatment groups: either an exercise and education program or a back care booklet group. Participants allocated to the exercise and education group will be asked to attend a group-based exercise and education program for 12 weeks. Participants allocated to the back care booklet group will receive a booklet that includes advice on self-management and prevention of back pain. 


You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • we are looking for participants who have recently (within the last three months) recovered from an episode of low back pain
