We need your help!

We are looking for a few patients to participate in a clinical research study here at Walsh University Physical Therapy Department.  

Are you or someone you know a candidate for this study that is examining the effect of two different types of manual interventions for low back pain?

  • Are you (or someone you know) 18 years of age or older?
  • Do you (or someone you know) have low back pain? 
  • Do movements/positions change your low back pain symptoms? 
  • Are you willing to have manual (hands on) treatment for your low back pain for 4 sessions for free?

If you answered yes to all of the above questions, consider calling 330-490-7566 or email to vscaia@walsh.edu for more information. 

If you are a candidate for this study and complete the 4 sessions you will receive a $40 gift card as an appreciation of your time/travel. 

This is a funded clinical trial through the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists
