Effectiveness of Abdominal Drawing in Maneuver with Lumbar Pelvic Exercises on Swiss Ball for Spinal Flexibility Among Patients with Low Back Pain
Keywords:Low back pain, physiotherapy, abdominal drawing in maneuver, spinal flexibility, core.
Background: Patients with nonspecific low back pain have difficulty in their activities of daily living. Spinal
flexibility problems are neglected in the patients with low back pain. These problems hampers the activities
of daily living. Hence this study will help in improving their flexibility and perform ADL easily. Numerous
studies have been done on spinal muscle strengthening, muscle activation to improve muscle endurance and
posture in patients with low back pain but less attention has been given to spinal flexibility, which will help
them to perform their ADL with ease. Low back pain is a big burden, as it causes more global disability
and it is increasing among young individuals. There is paucity of studies as far as abdominal exercises in
improving spinal flexibility is concerned.
Aim: To find the effect of abdominal drawing in maneuver and lumbar pelvic exercises on swiss ball among
patients with non-specific low back pain.
Methodology: There were 35 participants in the study. The type of study is experimental. The participants
involved were assessed for strength, pain and functional mobility. The participants are treated for pain,
strength and functional mobility.
Result: There is improvement seen in participants. The results of the participants are calculated by mean
and standard deviation. The post mean value of lumbar flexion was 5.926 which was more than pre mean
value of lumbar flexion that is 5.558. The post mean value of lumbar extension was 1.378 which was more
than pre mean value of lumbar extension that is 1.243. The post mean value of right lumbar lateral flexion
was 5.565 which was more than pre mean value of right lumbar lateral flexion that is 5.121. The post mean
value of left lumbar lateral flexion was 5.578 which was more than pre mean value of left lumbar lateral
flexion that is 5.578.
Conclusion: : Abdominal drawing in maneuver and lumbar pelvic exercises on swiss ball are effective in
improving spinal flexibility among patients with non-specific low back pain.
