The Back ON study is a study about the primary care management of back pain in Ontario. Specifically, it is a cohort study investigating the natural course and treatment of patients with low back pain by chiropractors, physiotherapists and family doctors practising in Ontario. Given that low back pain is one of the most common complaints in primary care, it is important to obtain a clearer picture of its current course and treatment in our province.

This study is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and supported by the Ontario Chiropractic Association, the Ontario Physiotherapy Association, and the Ontario College of Family Physicians.

The Back ON study has completed its enrollment process and is no longer accepting new volunteers.

For study participants who are already enrolled but wish to download another copy of the information and consent forms, please see the Recruitment & Forms page.
