TY - JOUR. T1 - Exercise capacity in non-specific chronic low back pain patients. T2 - a lean body mass-based Astrand bicycle test; reliability, validity and feasibility. AU - Hodselmans, Audy Paul. AU - Dijkstra, Pieter U. AU - Geertzen, Jan H B. AU - van der Schans, Cees. PY - 2008/9. Y1 - 2008/9. N2 - OBJECTIVE: Measurement of exercise capacity is essential in patients with non-specific chronic low back pain (CLBP). However, the conventional Astrand bicycle test is not feasible in patients with a very poor aerobic capacity. Therefore the Astrand bicycles test for non-specific CLBP patients based on lean body mass (LBM) was developed as an alternative. The aim of this study was to evaluate reliability and validity of the LBM-based Astrand test.SUBJECTS: Twenty patients with non-specific CLBP and 20 healthy subjects were included for the reliability evaluation, and 19 healthy subjects for the validity evaluation.METHOD: Patients and healthy subjects were assessed twice. Intra class correlation ...

Objective: To determine whether kinematic algorithms can distinguish subjects with chronic non-specific low back pain from asymptomatic subjects and subjects simulating low back pain, during trunk motion tasks.Design: Comparative cohort study.Subjects: A total of 90 subjects composed 3 groups; 45 chronic non-specific low back pain patients in the CLBP group; 45 asymptomatic controls people in the asymptomatic controls group. 20/45 subjects from the asymptomatic controls group composed the CLBP simulators group as well. Method: During performance of 7 standardized trunk motion tasks 6 spinal segments from the kinematic spine model were recorded by 8 infrared cameras. Two logit scores, for range of motion and speed, were used to investigate differences between the groups. Group allocation based on logit scores was also calculated, allowing the assessment of sensitivity and specificity of the algorithms. Results: For the 90 subjects (pooled data), the logit scores for range of motion and speed ...
Its estimated that about one-in-seven adults in the United States have chronic low back pain (lasting longer than three months), which can have a major effect on ones ability to carry out their daily activities. As such, its important to identify which factors may be associated with an increased risk for progressing from acute low back pain to chronic low back pain.. A systematic review published in 2020 reported that 26% of patients who seek treatment for new-onset low back pain will still have back pain three months later, and a third of these patients will continue to have low back pain at the six-month mark.. A February 2021 study reviewed data concerning 5,233 acute low back pain and found that 32% transitioned into chronic low back pain. Further analysis identified the following risk factors for chronic low back pain: smoking; obesity; severe initial disability; depression/anxiety; and a high score on the STarT Back screening tool, which looks at nine specific items (pain referred to ...
Low back pain is among the most common and costly chronic health care conditions. Recent research has highlighted the common occurrence of non-specific low back pain in adolescents, with prevalence estimates similar to adults. While multiple clinical trials have examined the effectiveness of commonly used therapies for the management of low back pain in adults, few trials have addressed the condition in adolescents. The purpose of this paper is to describe the methodology of a randomized clinical trial examining the effectiveness of exercise with and without spinal manipulative therapy for chronic or recurrent low back pain in adolescents. This study is a randomized controlled trial comparing twelve weeks of exercise therapy combined with spinal manipulation to exercise therapy alone. Beginning in March 2010, a total of 184 participants, ages 12 to 18, with chronic or recurrent low back pain are enrolled across two sites. The primary outcome is self-reported low back pain intensity. Other outcomes
Non-specific low back pain is a symptom that can occur with unclear causes. The condition can cause muscle pain, muscle spasm and imbalance muscles, so the stability of lower abdominal and back muscles will be reduced. In addition, another negative impact of the condition is the range of motion of the lumbar joint will decrease significantly. The motor control exercise (MCE) is one of exercise methods that can improve stability and range of motion (ROM) of lumbar joint. The aim of study is to evaluate the effect of motor control exercise in improving range of motion of lumbar region in non-specific low back pain condition. This study used an experimental study with one-group pre and posttest design. Twenty patients with non-specific low back pain selected with purposive sampling, perform motor control exercises for 12 time treatments by Physiotherapist. The range of motion was measured with goniometer The result shows that 20 participants had a significant increase of the lumbar mobility after ...

Then, the aim is to determine if functional rehabilitation program can improve it.. the unit of care have access to metabolic adaptations in measuring the muscular oxygenation and the pulmonary oxygen consumption, using near infrared spectroscopy and gas analyser. ...
Chronic low back pain is a highly prevalent condition, which is associated with high direct and indirect costs to the society. Although this condition is highly prevalent, it is still extremely difficult to treat. Two potentially useful treatments for patients with chronic low back pain are called the McKenzie and Back School treatment programs. These programs have good biological plausibility, are widely available and have a modest cost. Although these treatments are already available for patients, the evidence that supports their use is largely based on low quality methodological studies. Therefore, a high-quality randomised controlled trial is required to compare, for the first time, the effectiveness of these treatments in patients with chronic low back pain. One hundred and forty-eight patients will be randomly allocated to a four-week treatment program based upon the McKenzie or Back School principles. Clinical outcomes (pain intensity, disability, quality of life, and trunk flexion range of
OBJECTIVE: To study the pathogenesis of the pain of discography and the discogenic low back pain.. METHODS: 19 specimens of lumbar intervertebral discs from 17 patients with discogenic low back pain during posterior lumbar interbody fusion, and 12 physiologically aging discs and 10 normal control discs were collected to investigate the morphologic features and innervation containing neuropeptides substance P (SP), neural filament (NF), and vasoactive-intestinal peptide (VIP).. RESULTS: The distinct morphologic characteristic of the disc from the patient with discogenic low back pain was the formation of the strip zone of vascularized granulation tissue from the nucleus pulposus to the outer part of the annulus fibrosus in which there was one or several fissures. The structure of annulus fibrosus beyond the strip zone of granulation tissue was basically normal. The structures of the aging discs and the control discs showed the age-related changes. The innervation of SP, NF and VIP immunoreactive ...
Many tissues can generate low back pain. Unfortunately, research shows that the exact tissues causing low back pain cannot be specifically identified in up to 80% of individuals. In other words, we cannot single out the tissue(s) responsible for the pain. These patients are said to suffer from nonspecific low back pain; the specific cause of the pain cannot be determined. Although the specific tissues causing low back pain are difficult to identify, chiropractic doctors have found a number of factors consistently present in low back pain patients. These factors include vertebral subluxations, faulty spinal biomechanics, deconditioned spinal musculature and the practice of poor postural habits and techniques. By addressing these factors - the actual causes of the tissue injury - chiropractic doctors are able to obtain extraordinary results in low back pain sufferers. ...

Previous studies have indicated that trunk muscle strength decreases with chronic low back pain, and is associated with poor balance, poor functional performance, and falls in older adults. Strengthening exercises for chronic low back pain are considered the most effective intervention to improve functional outcomes. We developed an innovative exercise device for abdominal trunk muscles that also measures muscle strength. The correlation between muscle weakness, as measured by our device, the presence of chronic low back pain, and decreased physical ability associated with a risk of falling were evaluated in older women. Thirty-eight elderly women, who could walk without support during daily activities and attended our outpatient clinic for treatment of chronic low back pain, knee or hip arthritis, or osteoporosis, were included in this study. Anthropometric measurements were performed. Grip power and one-leg standing time with eyes open were measured, and abdominal trunk muscle strength was measured
El Pasos Injury Doctors® 915-850-0900 ⋆ Acknowledging statistical data, low back pain can be the result of a variety of injuries and/or conditions affecting the lumbar spine and its surrounding structures. Most cases of low back pain, however, will resolve on their own in a matter of weeks. But when symptoms of low back pain become chronic, its essential for the affected individual to seek treatment from the most appropriate healthcare professional. The McKenzie method has been used by many healthcare specialists in the treatment of low back pain and its effects have been recorded widely throughout various research studies. The following two articles are being presented to evaluate the McKenzie method in the treatment of LBP in comparison to other types of treatment options. Efficacy of the McKenzie Method in Patients With Chronic Nonspecific Low Back Pain: A Protocol of Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial Presented Abstract Background:
Background Low back pain is a widespread problem that has major social and economic consequences. In all, 85% to 90% of low back pain cases are classified as non-specific. Most patients with low back pain are treated successfully in primary care, but approximately 10% to 15% develop chronic symptoms (lasting longer than three months). Chronic low back pain can come from any part of the back that has a nerve supply capable of transmitting pain signals. These sources include discs, vertebrae, sacroiliac joints, facet joints, muscles, ligaments and other structures. Pain specialists try to identify the source of low back pain by using nerve blocks. They numb individual spinal nerves with anaesthetic injections to see if this leads to improvement in back symptoms. With substantial pain relief, they attempt to eliminate pain for a longer time by heating the spinal nerves with radiofrequency waves to ensure that the pain stimulus cannot be passed. This invasive procedure is called radiofrequency ...

Methods: Sixty-five consecutive patients with subacute1 non-specific low back pain [nLBP] were allocated in this clinical trial. The primary outcome measures were the PPTs of levels L1, L3, L5 of the M. Erector spinae and the M. Gluteus maximus. The middle of the left M. Triceps brachii was chosen as a neutral measuring point which is unrelated to nLBP. In addition, pain rating and disability variables were examined. In order to establish reference ...
Further research may uncover the links between the two and best treatment for those affected by both persistent headaches and persistent low back pain. People with persistent back pain or persistent headaches are twice as likely to suffer from both disorders, a new study from the University of Warwick has revealed.. The results, published in The Journal of Headache and Pain, suggest an association between the two types of pain that could point to a shared treatment for both.. The researchers from Warwick Medical School who are funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) led a systematic review of fourteen studies with a total of 460,195 participants that attempt to quantify the association between persistent headaches and persistent low back pain. They found an association between having persistent low back pain and having persistent (chronic) headaches, with patients experiencing one typically being twice as likely to experience the other compared to people without either ...

Rarely related to a serious underlying condition, low back pain is frequently mechanical in nature. Mechanical low back pain is often caused by pressure placed on adjacent nerves when disc material protrudes or inflammation affects joints and muscles. Most low back pain is related to some type of age-related degeneration from normal wear and tear, referred to as spondylosis. Most acute low back pain results from muscle strain or tears that can result from overstretching or overusing muscles supporting the spine, poor posture, sports injuries, or improper lifting techniques. Potential sources of low back pain may also include:. ...
Evidence on management of low back pain. Recently, van Tulder and collegues have published a series of reviews on evidence about effectiveness of conservative treatments in acute and chronic low back pain (1999). The systematic reviews were performed according to high methodological standards. Many different treatment modalities are studied. To summarise, in persisting back pain problems (duration longer than 6 weeks) an activating approach is useful, e.g. with exercise. Prevention of chronicity is the most important treatment goal in this phase. In longlasting, chronic back pain disability the use of multidisciplinary programmes can be helpful.. A new clinical model of low back pain and disability. In 1987 Waddell described a new clinical model for the treatment of low back pain. This model is also well presented in the book The Back Pain Revolution . Starting from the disease model other important elements is the development of chronic disablity are described and incorporated in a more ...

Yoga may improve back-related function in patients with chronic nonspecific low back pain, according to a review of 12 randomized controlled studies.
Massoud Arab, A., Salavati, M., Ebrahimi, I., Ebrahim Mousavi, M.. The objective of this study was to describe the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and diagnostic accuracy of five clinical tests used to measure trunk muscle endurance in low back pain. A convenience sample of 200 subjects were categorized into four groups: men without low back pain, women without low back pain, men with low back pain and women with low back pain. Five clinical static endurance tests of trunk muscles such as: Sorensen test, prone isometric chest raise test, prone double straight-leg raise test, supine isometric chest raise test and supine double straight-leg raise test were measured in each group. The authors concluded that the prone double straight-leg raise test has more sensitivity, specificity and predictive value in low back pain than other tests and could be used as a useful clinical method for testing the spinal muscle endurance to predict the probability of the ...
Back pain is one of the most expensive health complaints. Comparing the economic aspects of back pain interventions may therefore contribute to a more efficient use of available resources. This study reports on a long-term cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) and cost-utility analysis (CUA) of two treatments as viewed from a societal perspective: 1) exposure in vivo treatment (EXP), a recently developed cognitive behavioral treatment for patients with chronic low back pain who have elevated pain-related fear and 2) the more commonly used graded activity (GA) treatment. Sixty-two patients with non-specific chronic low back pain received either EXP or GA. Primary data were collected at four participating treatment centers in the Netherlands. Primary outcomes were self-reported disability (for the CEA) and quality-adjusted life years (for the CUA). Program costs, health care utilization, patient and family costs, and production losses were measured by analyzing therapy records and cost diaries. Data was

As low back pain is often a recurrent and sometime persistent problem, research into prevention is important. Chiropractors have traditionally treated patients with maintenance care, which means that patients are seen on a regular basis to prevent recurrences or to stop a persistent problem getting worse. However, it is not known if this has the expected effect.. This study will test the effectiveness of the maintenance care approach. Patients with recurrent or persistent low back pain will be treated in accordance with two different models. The first model is the maintenance care model, meaning that chiropractors will see the patient on a regular basis, regardless symptoms. The other model means that patients should be treated patients only when they themselves experience symptoms bad enough to seek care. After one year, it will be possible to see if there has been any difference between the groups in terms of pain, disability, quality of life and total number of treatments over the study ...
Over the last decade or so of working with mountain bikers at every level I have heard one question more than any other one - how do I get rid of my low back pain from riding? Low back pain is at an epidemic level on the trails and it is robbing a lot of riders of time and fun on their bikes.. Unfortunately most mountain bikers are going to have to deal with Low Back Pain at some point. I know this both because Ive personally worked with hundreds of riders who had it and, being a rider myself, Ive dealt with it too.. In fact, it was my own journey into dealing with low back pain that led me to being able to help so many riders with their own low back pain.. Like every new rider bitten by the mountain biking bug I rode every chance I got for the first few years. Getting 4-5 days a week on the trail was the norm as I logged countless hours in an effort to improve and have as much fun as possible on the trail.. And while this certainly helped at first I started to feel a lot more stiffness after ...
Spine. 1998 Dec 1;23(23):2601-7.. STUDY DESIGN: Eighteen-month, randomized controlled trial with partial crossover.. OBJECTIVES: To test the hypothesis that the control of lumbar flexion in the early morning will significantly reduce chronic, nonspecific low back pain.. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Previous studies have indicated an increased risk of low back pain with bending forward in the early morning, primarily because of increased fluid content in the intervertebral discs at that time.. METHODS: After 6 months of recording baseline data, 85 subjects with persistent or recurring low back pain were randomly assigned to treatment and control groups. The treatment group received instruction in the control of early morning lumbar flexion. The control group received a sham treatment of six exercises shown to be ineffective in reducing low back pain. Six months later, the control group received the experimental treatment, Diaries were used to record daily levels of pain intensity, disability, ...
Low back pain (or lumbago) is a common musculoskeletal disorder affecting 80% of people at some point in their lives. It accounts for more sick leave and disability than any other medical condition. It can be acute, subacute or chronic in duration. Most often, the symptoms of low back pain show significant improvement within a few weeks from onset with conservative measures.. One method of classifying lower back pain is by the duration of symptoms: acute (less than 4 weeks), sub acute (4-12 weeks), chronic (more than 12 weeks). Determination of the underlying cause is usually made through a combination of a medical history, physical examination, and, when necessary, diagnostic testing, such as an x-ray, CT scan, or MRI.. Provider Note: Low Back Pain attributes for over half of my patient base. Children can develop low back pain from the combination of the activity they are participating in and growth spurts. It is very common for adults to develop low back pain for many different reasons. ...
Back pain leads people to seek medical attention and results in the leading cause of work disability. It affects 60-80 percent of people throughout their lifetime. When it comes to aches and pains in the back, theres no one size fits all and no age is not a factor. In fact, all age groups get affected, and 23 percent of worlds adults suffer from chronic low back pain. An annual rate of adolescents suffering from back pain is between 11 percent to 33 percent.. Dr. Kanchan Anand, HOD Physiotherapy Department, Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla, New Delhi talks about this serious ailment. The most encountered form of low back pain is called nonspecific low back pain, it is usually categorized in 3 subtypes- Acute, sub-acute and chronic. It depends on the length or duration of suffering from back pain. Acute low back pain is an episode that lasted less than 6 weeks, sub-acute is between 6-12 weeks and chronic is for 12 weeks or more.. Nonspecific low back pain accounts for over 90 percent of ...

A 2015 clinical study examined the effect of 6 months of AposHealth® treatment on the gait (walking) patterns and clinical symptoms of a group of 60 subjects with chronic non-specific low back pain (NSLBP). These subjects were compared to a group of healthy subjects of the same ages.. The study found significant improvement in the AposHealth® subjects gait patterns and clinical symptoms following the treatment. These subjects improved their gait patterns to match the subjects in the healthy group and reported a reduction in pain and improvement in function.. Read the full text. ...
Most episodes of acute low back pain resolve spontaneously.1 However, among those in whom low back pain and disability have persisted for over a year, few return to normal activities. Thus the focus for preventing the onset of long term disability caused by non-specific low back pain is on the early management of persistent low back pain (pain present for more than six weeks and less than one year). No consensus exists on how to help health professionals and their patients choose the best treatments for this condition.. This article summarises the most recent recommendations from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on the early management of non-specific low back pain.1 The diagnosis of specific causes of low back pain (malignancy, infection, fracture, ankylosing spondylitis, and other inflammatory disorders) is not part of this guideline. ...
Chronic low back pain (CLBP) represents a problem in the occupational environment, often associated with disability, sick-leave demands, loss of productivity, anxiety, depression and high socioeconomic cost. The emergence of functional neuroimaging allowed new insights into brain structure and physiology in normality and chronic pain. While occupational related aspects are recognized as important risk factors for chronicity there have not been thus far evaluated by fMRI experiments. The overall objective of this study is to compare the neuronal correlates between groups of individuals CLBP with or without sick-leave demands. A total of 74 individuals were divided into three groups: chronic low back pain with sick-leave demands [CLBP_L]; chronic low back pain without sick-leave demands [CLBP_NL]; individuals without pain or sick-leave demands [Control]. Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to assess brain function during moderate acute pain stimulation task (thumb controlled pressure). After

Although current lumbar stabilization exercises are beneficial for chronic mechanical low back pain, further research is recommended focusing on global spinal alignment normalization. This randomized, controlled, blinded trial was conducted to determine the effects of adding cervical posture correction to lumber stabilization on chronic mechanical low back pain. Fifty adult patients (24 males) with chronic mechanical low back pain and forward head posture received 12 weeks treatment of either both programs (group A) or lumbar stabilization (group B). The primary outcome was back pain. The secondary outcomes included the craniovertebral angle, Oswestry Disability Index, C7-S1 sagittal vertical axis, and sagittal intervertebral movements. The multivariate analysis of variance indicated a significant group-by-time interaction (P = .001, partial η 2 = .609).

Background Low back pain (LBP) may be the leading global reason behind disability and it is connected with intervertebral disc degeneration (DD) in a few individuals. and examined by multiplex cytokine assay. Interleukin-8 (IL-8) manifestation was verified by ELISA in CSF and in intervertebral discs. The SPARC-null mouse style of intensifying, age-dependent DD and persistent LBP was useful for pre-clinical validation. Man SPARC-null and control mice received systemic Reparixin, a CXCR1/2 (receptors for IL-8 and murine analogues) inhibitor, for 8?weeks. Behavioral signals of axial radiating and discomfort pain were assessed. Pursuing completion of the study, discs were excised and cultured, and conditioned media was evaluated with a protein array. Findings IL-8 was elevated in CSF of chronic LBP patients with DD compared to pain-free subjects with or without DD. Chronic inhibition with reparixin alleviated AZD-5991 S-enantiomer low back pain behaviors and attenuated disc inflammation in ...

Results Subjects were contacted after a mean time of 19 months. The follow-up rate was 100% (35/35). Low back pain was significantly reduced (4.2 (1.8) to 2.0 (2.4), p , 0.001) and function was increased (Roland and Morris back specific questionnaire decreased from 4.7 (5.2) to 1.8 (5.0), p = 0.01). On a 5-point scale, 14/35 (40%) reported an important or very important effect related to unstable shoes. The health related quality of life was not modified (EQ-5D). Duration of the current episode of pain was reduced (p,0.01) as was the consumption of pain medication (p,0.01). The effect on pain was higher among those (16/35) who continued to wear unstable shoes at least one weakly, but the difference was not statistically significant (-2.9 (2.7) vs. -1.6 (3.1), p=0.2). Eight subjects dropped the unstable shoes because of side effect: 6 because of musculoskeletal pain, 1 because shoes were too warm and 1 because of instability.. ...

Acupuncture has relatively good evidence in the literature for treatment of chronic nonspecific low back pain. Several studies show that it can work better than ususal care which includes medications or physical therapy. Interestingly, randomized controlled trials did not show acupuncture to be superior to a sham acupuncture procedure. Acupuncture treatments usually consist of weekly visits, and it may take up to 5 session before noticing a benefit. Because of the out-of-pocket expense, acupuncture is often not the first line of treatment for low back pain. Patients I treat have usually failed all other treatments. Despite this, I am still able to get some results in this difficult population. Due to its good safety profile and minimally invasive nature, I think acupuncture is a good option for anyone that wants to try a more alternative approach to low back pain ...

Several investigators have suggested the presence of a link between Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) and lower limbs kinematics that can contribute to functional limitations and disability. Moreover, CLBP has been connected to postural and structural asymmetry. Understanding the movement pattern of lower extremities and its asymmetry during walking can provide a basis for examination and rehabilitation in people with CLBP. The present study focuses on lower limbs kinematics in individuals with CLBP during walking. Three-dimensional movements of the pelvic, hip, knee and ankle joints were tracked using a seven-camera Qualysis motion capture system. Functional dada analysis (FDA) was applied for the statistical analysis of pelvic and lower limbs motion patterns in 40 participants (20 CLBP and 20 controls). The CLBP group showed significantly different hip motion pattern in the transvers plane, altered knee and ankle motion pattern in the sagittal plane on the dominant side and different hip motion ...
