Most individuals have suffered from back pain at some point in their lives. It is the most common reason people go to the doctor or miss work, and it is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Although occasional back pain is very common, chronic back pain is persistent and often debilitating.
Chronic back pain is usually age-related, but can also result from a prior injury. Chronic back pain lasts for a period of twelve weeks or more, even after an initial injury or underlying cause of acute back pain has been treated. Men and women are equally affected by chronic back pain. The pain can range in intensity from a dull constant ache to a sudden sharp sensation that leaves an individual incapacitated.
We at Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conduct clinical trials for investigative medications for the treatment of chronic back pain. Qualified research participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost. Help advance medicine and medical research through participating in our clinical trial!
