• Better Outcomes for Older people with Spinal Trouble

Welcome to the website for the BOOST trial. This site is designed for both patients who are interested in participating in BOOST and clinicians and researchers who are involved in delivering the BOOST trial. In the BOOST trial we are studying two different approaches to physiotherapy treatment for older people with back and leg pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. We aim to recruit over 400 people aged 65 years and over, from across England. The BOOST trial is funded by the National Institute for Health Research and is part of a wider programme of research looking at pain and physical activity in older people. We hope that you find the information you are looking for here on the website. If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch with the BOOST team using the contact details at the bottom of this page.
