  • Chronic low back pain study: exercise training
We are starting a new project that involves two testing sessions before and after a 14-week exercise training program. We are aiming to investigate the long-term effects of physical exercise intervention on chronic low back pain.
If you are interested, please contact us at labodouleur@gmail.com.
  • Sub-acute low back pain:

We are looking for people suffering from acute low back pain willing to participate in a sensory evaluation and magnetic resonance study.

Participants, men and women, must be between 18 and 90 years of age, suffer from low back pain for more than 16 weeks, have no previous history of neurological or psychiatric disorder, no neuropathy, and no chronic pain other than in the lower back. The study will take place at the Functional Neuroimaging Unit, Institut Universitaire de Gériatrie de Montréal. Volunteers will be compensated for their time and travel expenses.
