If you suffer from chronic back pain you may be eligible to participate in a paid research study on the benefits of a novel mind-body treatment for chronic pain. The research study consists of two MRI scan sessions four to six weeks apart on the CU Boulder campus, before and after treatment. Participants will be compensated $225.
MRI is safe and non-invasive technology for measuring brain function, and participants will be given a photo of their brain to take home. The treatment will be administered at the Interventional Pain Management clinic at the University of Colorado Hospital at the Anschutz Denver metro campus.
