IS A SLEEP INTERVENTION EFFECTIVE FOR LOW BACK PAIN WHEN GENETICS IS CONSIDERED? STUDY PROTOCOL OF A RANDOMISED CO-TWIN TRIAL
Presenter: Pinheiro MB
The module addresses:
Question: What is the efficacy of a web-based sleep quality intervention
in people with chronic low back pain and insomnia when the significant
genetic influences that affect these conditions are controlled for? What is
the feasibility of this study, specifically the recruitment and follow-up rate,
adherence, diffusion, and twins’ perceptions regarding the intervention?
Conclusion: The results of this study will provide precise estimates into
the efficacy of a sleep intervention for people with low back pain and
insomnia because it will control for the significant contribution of genetics
to both conditions.
Key Practice Points:
• This study will help to understand the effects of a sleep intervention for
people with low back pain and insomnia using an innovative design that
controls for genetics and web-based data collection methods.
• Results from this study will inform the implementation of policy in the
treatment of low back pain.
