Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lower pain related disability and interference scores. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 10 weeks, 18 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    As compared to the control group participants, CLBP patients who use the WW intervention will report lower pain-related disability and lower pain interference scores.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Fewer pain-related disabling beliefs and attitudes. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 10 weeks, 18 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    As compared to the control group participants, CLBP patients who use the WW will report fewer pain-related disabling beliefs and attitudes, have better self-efficacy for managing pain and negative affect and will score higher on mindfulness/present moment awareness. They will also have higher physical activity scores and lower depression scores.
