PARK CITY, Utah. – Neuro Performance Integration (NPI), a private medical practice, is recruiting 30 locals to participate in an Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved study on chronic knee pain. The study examines the effects of two treatments (soft-tissue mobilization and prescribed rehabilitation) on knee pain. The study begins on April 20th.
“NPI sees tons of locals with chronic knee pain because Park City plays hard. We focus on getting to the root of the problem so that our patients can avoid surgery and pain medications, if possible,” said Dr. Jake Shores, DC, Chief Medical Officer at NPI. “This study is an important step towards developing new, innovative treatments that can help us serve the community better.”
Participants will receive 12 weeks of treatment, free of charge, at NPI’s clinic on Kearns Blvd. The study will divide participants into three groups. Group one will receive soft-tissue mobilization treatments at NPI. Group two will be prescribed at-home rehabilitation therapy. Group three will receive a combination of both treatments.
Participants must meet the following criteria:
Must be age 18 or older when the study begins.
Must be experiencing chronic knee pain for three or more months.
The pain CANNOT be due to surgery, a knee fracture, a knee tumor, or knee trauma.
