Back Pain Study

Welcome to the Stanford Back Pain Study

The Stanford Back Pain Study is a randomized controlled clinical study led by Dr. Larry Chu that is funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The goal of the study is to learn more about how pain medications can be used to treat chronic low back pain.  Ultimately, we would like to use the information gained from this study to help us develop more effective treatments for those who suffer from chronic pain.

We are currently analyzing data from our back pain studies and preparing our findings for publication. We are not currently enrolling new patients in any of our back pain studies. Here is a link to the Stanford Medicine clinical trials database.
