Be part of innovative new research to understand the role of the brain in controlling the lower back muscles in people with lower back pain.

We will test people with different types of back pain to evaluate if their brain responds differently to lower back exercises.

The study lasts two to three hours and evaluates the function and the organisation of the back muscles in the brain before and after a single lower back exercise training session. We will use transcranial magnetic stimulation, a non-invasive method, to evaluate the changes in the brain.

If interested, please complete this online survey.

Participants will be reimbursed with $50 cash for their participation.
