Influence of a complex of muscle-strengthening exercises on quality of life in lumbosacral pain

Full Text:


Objective: to elaborate and substantiate an algorithm of a complex of muscle-strengthening exercises for patients with lumbago. Patients and methods. Seventy-nine patients aged 20—45 years were examined and divided into 2 groups: 1) those who received rehabilitation treatment (an individual complex of muscle-strengthening exercises) and 2) those who had standard treatment (exercise therapy, physiotherapy, and pharmacotherapy). Results and discussion. A significant reduction in pain syndrome was demonstrated in Group 1 just after their first therapy session whereas in Group 2, it regressed after session 5. After 12 sessions of the individual complex of muscle-strengthening exercises, the pain syndrome was also ascertained to be diminished statistically significantly (p <0.05). Conclusion. The developed procedure of rehabilitation treatment using the individual complex of muscle-strengthening exercises in patients with pain in the lumbar spine could enhance therapeutic efficiency and considerably improve the quality of life.
