“Biotensegrity: Thoracolumbar Fascial Integrity in Chronic Low Back Pain”
This is a prospective study on chronic low back pain patients aimed at investigating how findings on a physical examination and musculoskeletal ultrasound may correlate with myofascial damage in the lower back. By comparing these findings with a control group and collecting follow up data on patients treated in the course of normal clinical practice, the investigators will be able to discern if fascial pathology contributes to chronic low back pain and if this treatment approach may provide clinical benefit to patients in the form of pain reduction and/or reduction in pain medication use.
