Background

Recent research has dramatically changed our understanding of chronic pain. It has suggested that the brain plays a central role in chronic pain.

 

Research Aims

This study has two goals. First, we aim to advance our scientific understanding of the brain bases of chronic back pain. Second, we aim to test a mind-body treatment for chronic back pain.

 

Participation Overview

The study will take about 8 weeks. It requires two functional MRI brain scans – one before and one after treatment. The brain scans are safe and noninvasive (no radioactivity, no contrast agents). We will also ask you to complete a number of questionnaires. You will be compensated ~$200 for your time.
