Study on lower back pain in workers aged over 55

We are inviting workers (aged 55+ years) with persistent low back pain to take part in a focus group on the Jordanstown campus at Ulster University.

Project Information

Are you:

  • Aged over 55 years
  • In employment

Do you have:

  • Persistent Low Back pain (pain lasting for more than 3 months)

We would like to hear about your knowledge and experiences of working with low back pain and what influences you to self-manage your condition.

This project, led by Professor Suzanne McDonough from the Centre for Health and Rehabilitation Technologies at Ulster University, aims to develop an online resource that can provide education and skills training to assist people like you to self-manage their persistent low back pain.
