About Our Research Study
Our study evaluates the effectiveness of a mind-body intervention at reducing back pain. Our program will be offered in the form of a fully virtual course.
More than 110 million Americans are burdened by pain.

Beyond the devastating effect pain can have on patients’ lives, the cost of treating pain is staggering. Additionally, various studies have shown that conventional treatments, such as surgeries, injections, and narcotic pain medications, have not worked.

Our goal is to find an effective, safe, and accessible approach to treating back pain.
