Wand, B. M., O'Connell, N. E., Di Pietro, F., & Bulsara, M. (2011). Treating chronic nonspecific low back pain with a sensorimotor retraining approach: An exploratory multiple-baseline study of 3 participants. Australian Pain Society 31st Annual Scientific Meeting.
Chronic nonspecific low back pain (CNSLBP) is a common healthcare problem for which current interventions are only moderately successful . There is growing evidence of extensive cortical reorganisation and perceptual disturbances which may contribute to the condition . The aim of this study was to test whether a graded sensorimotor retraining program, aimed at influencing cortical representation, would reduce pain intensity, interference of pain on daily life and self reported disability.
