e-CBT for chronic back pain
A 12-week internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy intervention showed significant but limited benefits for patients with chronic back pain. Fifty-four people took part in the study, 26 were randomised to a self-help, CBT-based management programme, and 28 to a control group. Outcome measures included coping strategies, pain beliefs, hospital anxiety and depression and quality-of-life scales, but only two significant effects were observed: catastrophising and quality-of-life scores.
