Alexandra Carmichael, a scientist who has back pain in her family, is conducting a study onback pain through the website she co-founded, CureTogether. Specifically, she is gathering self-reported data on symptoms, treatments, and triggers for back pain. Her goal is to discover associations in this data to help characterize which treatments work best forpatients with different groups of symptoms. If you are someone with a spinal cord injury who has been dealing with chronic pain, this study may be of interest to you.
There are currently 224 people with back pain who have joined the CureTogether study. At this time Alexandra is calling for more people with back pain to join the study. Participation is entirely voluntary, anonymous, and completely confidential. It involves joining the CureTogether study at the website provided, then checking off and rating symptoms and treatments. It should take 15-20 minutes to complete. Statistics for the study are posted live so you will be able to see them after completing your entry.
