Sustained acoustic medicine for chronic low back pain secondary to herniated nucleus pulposus or other conditions
Purpose: ZetrOZ’s Ultrasonic Diathermy device is intended for use as a portable and wearable medical device which, when applied to various areas of the body applies Low Intensity Therapeutic Ultrasound (LITUS) to deep tissues. This device is FDA-cleared for pain reduction, treatment of muscle spasm and joint contracture, and increasing local circulation. This study will look at the use of therapeutic ultrasound to relieve pain and reduce disability in subjects with chronic low back pain, a subset of which will have chronic low back pain due to a herniated disc, over an 8-week treatment period.

Biopsychosocial influence on shoulder pain
Purpose: Chronic shoulder pain is a common, costly, and disabling problem for society. The identification of factors predictive of the development of chronic shoulder pain is necessary to develop innovative and effective treatments to reduce the societal impact of shoulder disorders. In previous work the investigators identified a genetic and psychological subgroup that robustly predicted heightened shoulder pain responses in a pre-clinical cohort and poor 12 month shoulder pain recovery rates in a clinical surgical cohort. In this follow-up study the investigator proposes to test how interventions tailored to the high risk subgroup affect pain responses in a pre-clinical cohort.
