Chronic low back pain is often part of living with fibromyalgia. Mark Jensen, with the University of Washington, is embarking on a study to understand why different treatments work – or don’t – including drug-less treatment options. This study will review both physical and mental approaches (CBT, mindfulness and exercise) to treat the pain, with a vision toward identifying who will most benefit from which treatment – or a combination of treatments.

To qualify for the study, you must be at least 18 and have a diagnosis of moderate to severe lower back pain on a regular basis. You must be able to read and understand English and have internet access along with a webcam and microphone. Participation in the study will last about eight to nine months with remote treatment. In-person visits are not required.
