A Study to Utilize a Tonal Exercise System to Improve Low Back Pain (LBP) Treatment Outcomes

Overview

About this study

This study will assess the effect of incorporating a tonal exercise device into clinical and chiropractic care for lower back pain. 

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.

Inclusion Criteria:

 

For Groups 1-4

  • Patients seeking clinical treatment for non-specific LBP through sports medicine, PM&R, or orthopedic physical therapy (PT) or through chiropractic care at Mayo Clinic.
  • Subjects between 18-65 years old.

For Group 5

  • Subjects between 18-65 years old.
  • Self-reported non-specific LBP from the Tonal customer base.
  • Specific to Group 5 subjects, participants recruited from the Tonal customer base will be matched (as near as possible) to existing clinical subjects recruited for Groups 1-4.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Acute and traumatic LBP onset (identifiable by singular event such as a car accident). Specific to Group 5, Tonal customers will be excluded if they indicate that they are seeking external physical therapy or chiropractic care to treat their LBP.
  • Pregnant females. Pregnancy will be verbally assessed in female participants.  In Groups 1-4, this will be addressed during consent. In Group 5 this will be addressed during the question screening.  Female subjects will be asked to inform the study team if they become pregnant during the study period. If a subject becomes pregnant, they will be excluded from participation in any future study activities as pregnancy is a known confounding factor to lower back pain.
