Suffer from Chronic Constipation?
UCLA Constipation Research Study
If you suffer from chronic constipation, you may be eligible to participate in a UCLA Constipation Research Study. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a non-invasive and non-drug therapy that admin-isters painless electrical pulses to the body through a small battery-powered device. It has been used to relieve pain for a variety of illnesses. Previous studies have shown that TENS could help treat chronic constipa-tion better than standard therapy. However, treatment techniques have not been standardized and rigorously studied.
If you are eligible, you will be able to receive monetary compensation and free education on TENS use.
Study participation will consist of
- daily at-home 30-minute TENS sessions for four weeks,
- surveys, and consultations with the research staff.
