Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the effect of physical therapy, including exercises to improve lumbar stabilization in patients with chronic lumbosacral pain syndrome. Material and methods: 10 patients with chronic lumbosacral syndrome divided into experimental and control groups were examined. Both groups received a physical therapy regimen of individual procedures, 5 times a week for a 6-week course. The physical therapy for the experimental group included warm compresses, massage, breathing exercises, lumbar stabilization exercises, Swiss ball exercises, exercise with TheraBand and stretching. The control group procedures included massage, breathing exercises, analytical and isometric exercises. For the purposes of the study, changes in the static power endurance of the muscles forming the lumbar muscle corset are double-tracked by the static part of the Kraus–Weber test. Results: Physical therapy, including exercises to increase lumbar stabilization improves significantly the static muscle endurance in the patients of the experimental group. In the control group there is also positive changes, but the values are less pronounced. Conclusions: The application of physical therapy, including exercises for lumbar stabilization, exercises with Swiss ball and elastic bands, in combination with warm compresses and stretching, leads to improved static power endurance and strengthens the muscle corset in patients with chronic lumbosacral syndrome. Key words: chronic lumbosacral syndrome, lumbar stabilization, static power endurance.
