Back Pain Study

Do you have chronic back pain?

If so, you may qualify for a brief research study being conducted by investigators at TSRI and Scripps Green Hospital to find out how the long-term use of opioid pain medicines can affect patients with back pain. Participants may be compensated. This is an observational study and does not involve treatments.


Who is eligible to participate in this study?

Individuals who are at least 20 years old who have had back pain for six or more months.


What will happen during the study?

You will come to Scripps Green Hospital for either one or two visits that last up to 90 minutes each.

On each visit you will be asked questions about your health, and asked to give a small blood sample. In between visits, you may be asked to keep a medication diary.
