The aim of this study was to approbate own kinesitherapeutic methodology in lumbosacral pain syndrome and to study its effectiveness.
Material and Methods: The study includes 36 participants, mean age (X±SD) 51.67±4.93 years, selected according to the indications for the use of experimental methods. The methodology includes the following functional tests: anamnesis, somatoscopy, Shober Test, Ott Test, Lasseg Test, VAS (Visual Analog Scale). The examination of the pain was done through experimentally induced palpation pain (applying the same pressure, by the same person) in trigger point (TP) and evaluated with VAS. Values of pain were measured before therapy and tree months after kinesitherapy treatment which includes: soft-tissue mobilization, analytical exercises, post-isometric relaxation, hydrotherapy (tangentor).
Results: 36 people (12 women and 24 men) with lumbosacral pain syndrome were included. The mean (± SD) of the pain threshold measured before and three months after the kinesitherapy program was 9.06 ± 0.79mm and 1.69 ± 0.82mm, respectively. Differences in mean pain thresholds in both measurement period were statistically significant (p <0.05).
Data presented demonstrate the effectiveness and positive effects of the applied kinesitherapeutic methodology in patients with lumbosacral pain syndrome. The strong reduction in pain symptom and muscle spasm in the course of three months treatment improves the quality of life of patients with this pathology.
