Effectiveness of Lumbar Stabilization Exercise in Improving Lumbar Spine Endurance by Using Sorenson’s Test and EMG Analysis for People with Chronic Low Back Ache
Keywords:Chronic low back ache (CLBP), surface Electromyography, strength endurance.
Background: Strength endurance in lower back region is the most important factor for chronic low - back pain.
There are several treatments for strengthening low back muscle. Strength and endurance that have proven benefit
in CLBP patients; however, there are very few studies that focus on lumbar stabilization exercises.
Purpose: The intention of this study was to improve the strength and endurance more effectively than usual
programs by performing lumbar stabilization exercises.
Materials And Methods: This Quasi-Experimental study had 40 participants with persistent LBP, aged 25 to
50, divided into lumbar stability (n=20) and lumbar strengthening (n=20) groups. sEMG measured strength
endurance, NPRS scale measured pain, before and after intervention.
Results: Lumbar stabilization exercises (Group A) were significantly more effective than static stretching and
strengthening exercises (Group B) in treating persistent low back pain, with p<0.001 in outcome measures.
Conclusion: Lumbar stabilization exercises have been demonstrated to be more effective than conventional
therapies in patients with CLBP.
