Study Summary

This is a randomized control trial of vertical climbing ergometer exercise for individuals with chronic low back pain. Using a parallel-arm design, participants will be randomized to 8 weeks of supervised exercise using either the vertical climbing ergometer (CLMBR) or a recumbent cycling ergometer. This feasibility study will examine the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of vertical climbing exercise for individuals with chronic low back pain.
