Efficacy of iliopsoas passive stretching vs movement awareness on back pain and disability among subjects with lumbar disc prolapse


Author(s): Ranju Thapa, Paul Daniel V K and Pruthviraj R

Abstract: LBP is found out to be one of the most common problem affecting lifestyle these days and is commonly associated with lumbar IVDP. Several concepts behind relationship between IVDP and LBP have been spotlighted but more recently muscular inefficiency and lack of physical activity is something that has drawn our attention under which the present study has focused on Iliopsoas muscle. The study consisted of 30 subjects with age group of 35-50 years recruited as per the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The assessment was taken based on VAS and ODI. Subjects were divided into two groups by simple random sampling method. Group A was administered passive IP stretch and Group B was administered movement awareness in the form of lunges for period of 6 weeks. Group A and Group B both showed improvement in ODI and VAS score with the P value of P<0.001 suggestive of strong statistical significance(student paired t test).The difference between two groups compared in terms of ODI score pre and post test showed moderate significance with P value of P<0.024 with the mean difference of 5.949 and 6.615 respectively favouring Group B(student unpaired t test).Similarly both the groups showed reduction in VAS score with P value of P<0.001 suggestive of strong significance but the difference between two groups showed less significance with P value of P<0.574 and mean difference of 2.067 and 2.800 respectively(student unpaired t test).
