Effect of motor control exercise on a subgroup of nonspecific chronic low back pain


Author(s): Shalima KP and Rajasheker Sannasi

Abstract: Background and Objective: Back pain is the most frequent cause of activity limitation in people aged younger than 55 years. The purpose of this case series is to describe the use of classification system in the evaluation of patients with Non specific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) system for the management of 6 patients with chief complaints of low back pain. Patients were initially classified into flexion and active extension subgroups based on history, clinical examination and specific motor control tests. This system was used to develop management program in which the patients were instructed in symptom reducing strategies for positioning and functional movement. Exercises to address the direction-specific impairments were prescribed. Limited evidence has been found till now on treatment emphasizing motor control exercises using classification system. Even though many studies had been done on low back pain patients by using motor control exercises, systematic reviews concluded that future studies are required on subgroup of NSCLBP. Thus this study is intended to do the study on the classification, intervention, and outcomes for patients with active extension and flexion syndrome.
Methodology: The study was conducted on 6 Low Back Pain subjects and they were sub classified in to flexion and active extension group. Exercises to address the direction-specific impairments were prescribed for both subgroups. The patient participated in 3wks motor control exercise programme. Pain and disability were measured for all the 6 LBP population before and after giving motor control exercises and then follow up after 10weeks, 3months and 6 months. The patients reported a decrease in symptoms, disability, and frequency of recurrences.
Results: The results revealed that there was significant difference in pain and disability after giving motor control exercise to those subgroup of patients.
Interpretation and Conclusion: It was concluded that there was a significant improvement in pain and disability among LBP patients after giving motor control exercise for 10 weeks.
