Summary

The long-range goal is to reduce suffering and establish alternative options for older adults experiencing pain. This is a randomized controlled study examining the effect of music on pain management in older adults.

Description

Study Objectives:

  1. Evaluate the efficacy of the music with suggestion intervention for chronic lower back pain in aging adults, with the indication that music with suggestion will significantly decrease subjective measures of pain compared to controls of music without suggestion or an informational recording about chronic pain.
  2. Evaluate the efficacy of the music with suggestion intervention for sleep in aging adults, with the indication that music with suggestion will significantly improve subjective measures of sleep compared to controls of music without suggestion or an informational recording about chronic pain.
  3. Evaluate the efficacy of the music with suggestion intervention for mood in aging adults, with the indication that music with suggestion will significantly improve subjective measures of mood compared to controls of music without suggestion or an informational recording about chronic pain.

Recruitment Plan

There will be 66 participants who wish to utilize mind-body interventions as treatment for chronic lower back pain.

The individual's eligibility will be determined using an Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria Screening Checklist containing the criteria listed above. If an individual appears to be eligible, he/she will be educated about the study purpose, procedures, and requirements. If the individual is interested in participating, they will sign a consent form, which may be signed through mail, through electronic platforms such as DocuSign, or in-person. The participant will be scheduled for their first formal education session and informed consent will take place during this session. This education session will take place through a video conference platform. All three groups will meet with a research staff member approximately five times (once during the education session and approximately once per week each following week) throughout the duration of the study. These sessions will take place through a video conference platform.
