A research team from the University of Sydney is working on a study titled: E-health to Empower patients with musculoskeletal pain in rural Australia (EMPoweR). Their researchers provide free services to the community and do not operate to make a profit from its participants.
The research team believes that telehealth is an excellent opportunity for rural Australians in times of pandemics and the community would be highly benefited from our free treatment for back or knee pain. Participants in the study are volunteers and will be assisting with important research in this field by helping to identify approaches to increase access to recommended treatments for low back pain and knee pain in rural Australia.
