INFLUENCE OF TWO DIFFERENT REHABILITATION APPROACHES ON THE INCIDENCE OF PAIN IN NON-SPECIFIC LUMBOSACRAL PATIENT SYNDROME
Abstract Introduction: lowback pain is a very common diagnosis whose treatment costs are high. It often leads to long-term loss of function and to disability. Despite numerous studies, the most effective approach to chronic nonspecific lumbosacral syndrome is not yet known. Aim of the study: To determine whether there is a difference after different rehabilitation approaches in non-specific lumbosacral pain syndrome in the level and incidence of pain. Methods and subjects: The study is a randomized controlled trial (therapeutic trial). 50 subjects between the ages of 37 and 69 who have chronic non-specific lumbosacral pain syndrome were recruited from the Health Center Zagreb - West. Two different exercise programs were conducted, two weeks each with 5 arrivals, lasting about 20 minutes. Results: Differences between hypothesis testing groups; pain index - Mann Whitney U test p = 0.600 Discussion: Combined exercises included strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, strengthening the trunk stabilizer muscles and stretching the muscles of the posterior lobe of the lower leg. Although such exercises are very popular in the conservative treatment of patients with back pain, evidence of the effectiveness of this approach is still sparse, as confirmed by this research. Conclusion: Both exercise programs significantly influenced the reduction of pain in subjects with chronic non-specific back pain.
