This project will investigate the value of a sleep quality program in people with low back pain and insomnia.

What is involved?

An initial screening questionnaire for both twins to assess eligibility. Eligible twins will be randomly allocated to a 6 week web-based sleep program which entails an initial baseline 20 min questionnaire and then weekly activities which will take an average 30-60mins. Upon completion of the program - and then again 6 weeks after participation, a further questionnaire will be required - this should take 20-30mins. One last 5 minute questionnaire will be needed a week later.
