Structural Integration for Chronic Low Back Pain is a groundbreaking clinical study conducted by Eric Jacobson, Ph.D., a research scientist at Harvard Medical School. It has been funded by a grant from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, a branch of National Institutes of Health up to this point. But those funds are now exhausted, with the analysis of comprehensive data on pain disability, psychology, balance, gait and blood biomarkers still unfinished. Your contribution will support the completion of this study and the publication of its results, which could lead to new options for back pain treatment. Learn about Structural Integration (SI).
Initial clinical results were presented by Dr. Jacobson at Harvard Medical School, Integrative Medicine Research Seminar, sponsored by Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Spalding Rehabilitation Network. Watch the video.
