AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Using AoU Big Data to decode factors which contribute to chronic back pain

Back pain is a common cause of disability in the US. All of Us provides a unique opportunity to assess measures of physical activity, diet, environmental factors, depression and coping skills on prevention of the transition of acute back pain to chronic back pain. Participants can be provided with exercise and health information regarding these conditions and the impact of racial/ethnic background on outcomes can be assessed. This is a timely study which could aid the opioid crisis fight.
