The purpose of the EMBARK Follow-up Project (EFP) is to determine if there is a significant correlation between post-study massage-seeking and changes in pain reported by participants during the Exploring Massage Benefits for Osteoarthritis of the Knee (EMBARK) parent study (NCT00970008). The EFP hypothesizes that a positive correlation exists between pain relief during the parent study and post-study massage-seeking behavior.
The EFPQ is an original set of questions, designed and validated by Dr. Jerger under the supervision of NCCAM and Dr. Ruth Wolever to be administered by email or phone to address the specific aims of this project.
