Western Sydney University is undertaking a research study into lower back pain.

The study will examine the relationship between body mass distribution and postural control in people with chronic low back pain.

The School of Science and Health is looking for people with regular occurrences of low back pain to analyse how their distribution of body mass may be affecting their ability to properly control body posture.

Participants will be asked to perform an arm movement task to assess their ability to control body posture.

This study has been approved by the Western Sydney University Human Research Ethics Committee. The approval number is H10512.

This research study has been completed and is no longer taking participants.
