The Mayo Clinic pain clinic in Rochester, MN is seeking volunteers with chronic back pain and depression or anxiety symptoms to potentially participate in an eight-month research study. We are conducting research on effective treatment interventions for patients who suffer from chronic low back pain and depression or anxiety symptoms.
You might be eligible to participate in this study if you are 18-75 years old, suffering from chronic low back pain for at least 6 months, and suffering from depression or anxiety symptoms. This eight month study includes four research visits to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, weekly online surveys about your pain, and physical therapy and antidepressant medication depending on your group assignment.
