The purpose of this study was to determine if an abbreviated TPE session delivered virtually was as effective as in-person delivery (ID) for persons with chronic LBP. No difference between the VD and ID for cognition, attitudes and beliefs, pain, and physical performance measures was hypothesized. Curiosity about differences in visual attention (VA) and influence on outcome measures between the 2 groups was explored. There were no pre/post differences between the groups for the RNPQ, SOPA-B, VAS, SLR and FFT. There were differences between the groups’ eye gaze time devoted to face (ID=41.7%, VD=17.2%), Prezi (ID=48.1%, VD=71.1%), and other (ID=10.2%, VD=4.6%). All subjects demonstrated improvements for RNPQ, SOPA-B, and VAS post intervention. This research study indicates delivery mode did not alter the outcome for persons with chronic LBP.
