Background & Aim: Low back pain is one of the most common pains that about 80% of people experience in their lifetime. Millions of dollars are spent annually on the treatment of chronic low back pain, so proper and timely treatment is essential. This study aimed to determine the effect of McKenzie-based and Pneumatic Lumbar Unloading Orthosis on pain and disability in patients with chronic low back pain.
Materials & methods: In this clinical trial, 27 patients with chronic low back pain who referred to the clinic of Shahid Adabian in Kermanshah in 2018 were included in the study by convenience sampling method and were randomly assigned to one of the study groups, which included the McKenzie-based group with Pneumatic Lumbar Unloading Orthosis, the McKenzie-based group, and the control group.
Results: In both McKenzie-based and McKenzie-based groups with Pneumatic Lumbar Unloading Orthosis, pain and disability were significantly reduced. Although the intervention in the McKenzie-based group receiving Pneumatic Lumbar Unloading Orthosis resulted in a further reduction in pain and disability compared to the McKenzie-based group, the difference between the two groups in terms of pain relief was statistically significant (P< 0.05) but it was not significant in terms of the reduction of disability.
Conclusions: The Pneumatic Lumbar Unloading Orthosis with McKenzie-based reduced the pain and disability of people with chronic low back pain more effectively, so the simultaneous use of these therapeutic interventions in these people is recommended.
