New research shows that there are changes in the brain when someone has pain for a long time. We believe it is these changes that could make recovery from pain slower and more difficult.
Using this knowledge of the brain and how it changes with pain we have developed two new treatment programs for chronic low back pain. These treatment programs target how the brain and central nervous system process information to produce low back pain.
We are conducting a Commonwealth Government randomised clinical trial to determine which of these treatment programs is most effective in reducing pain for people with chronic low back pain.
If you participate in the study, you will be randomly allocated into one of two treatment groups.
The treatments include:
If you fit these criteria please leave your details below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

NeuRA researchers are stepping up their research with the introduction of a new perturbation treadmill aimed at preventing falls and improving balance. What is a perturbation treadmill? A perturbation treadmill is a treadmill, like those in the gym, but with two belts instead of one. We can control the speed of each belt independently. Each foot is placed on a […]
