Do you want to start feeling better?

We are seeking adults with chronic low back pain to participate in a home-based walking program aiming
to increase your activity, reduce pain and improve quality of life.

You are eligible to participate if you are:

  • 18 to 65 years old
  • have chronic low back pain; and
  • are not physically active

What is involved?

  • 4 testing sessions (30-45 minutes duration) which will involve health-related questionnaires and a simple walking test: 3 of the sessions in your home, 1 at UniSA City East Campus, Frome Road
  • Take part in an 8 week home-based walking program, so you can do it at home in your own time

All participants will receive a $25 voucher
