Association of Poor Sleep with Low Back Pain among Symptomatic and Asymptomatic Population: A Research Protocol
Keywords:Low back pain, sleep, Visual Analogue Scale, Insomnia Severity Index.
Background and objectives- Low back pain (LBP) is the key contributor to ages of disability. Although Low
back pain puts an immerse economic strain on healthcare services, this disease is responsible for impacting
people’s daily lives. Low back pain is a widely common illness impacting persons of all ages. Sleep is an
intricate and fundamental organic element with the social objective of keeping up homeostasis by methods
for various physiological frameworks. Sleep quality has gained interest for people with musculoskeletal
pain conditions as a contributing factor to the outcome. Sleep consistency has created consideration as a risk
factor to the outcomes for people with MSK pain disorders. Some studies show a bidirectional link between
intensity of pain and sleep quality. Recent attention to the combination of inflammatory processes in pain on
the one side and sleep on the other, contributes to neuro-immunological mechanisms that may contribute to
the near connection between pain and sleep.
Aim and objectives- To study association of poor sleep with low back pain among symptomatic and
Materials and Method- All asymptomatic and symptomatic individuals with low back pain in the group
between 35-50 years of age will fill the survey using Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Insomnia Severity
Index Questionnaire, and further data will be analyzed.
Result- The parameters of outcome measures of both the group of low back pain individuals will be analysed
using the statistical test namely students paired T-test.
Conclusion- Based on the previous studies we assume that there should be a positive association between
both poor sleep and low back pain.
