Paid Clinical Trials Aim to Conquer Spinal Fusion Pain

Phoenix, Arizona – Physicians Research Group (PRG) and a leading orthopedic surgeon are currently enrolling participants in a clinical trial to test the efficacy of pain medication that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the relief of pain related to the fusion of two or three vertebrae.  The goal of this research study is to decrease the pain experienced by spinal fusion patients.

Spinal fusion is a procedure that helps stabilize the spine of patients who experience chronic pain related to back injuries, herniated discs, degeneration of discs and vertebrae, the narrowing of the spinal canal, or damage caused by infections or tumors. The vertebrae are literally fused together, using either a synthetic bone substitute or bone that is harvested from the patient’s pelvis or taken from a bone bank.

Nearly a half a million patients undergo spinal fusion surgery each year with great success yet doctors note there can be a significant amount of pain during recovery.  The worst pain is generally experienced during the first four weeks after surgery.  Pain is likely to decrease gradually, but some patients continue to have pain until three to six months after surgery. 

Paid Clinical Trials Offer Hope For Better Pain Management 

Effective pain management is an important element in recovery after any surgery. Patients who are limited by pain are less likely to engage in physical therapy, exercise and other activities that lead to an easier and more successful rehabilitation. Inactivity can also lead to complications in recovery, such as blood clots.

By participating in this paid research study, you may experience greater success and comfort in your spinal fusion procedure. As well, the information gathered through this clinical study could help millions of others who will undergo spinal fusion surgery in coming years.
