Therapeutic Exercise Can Decrease Chronic Low Back Pain

Treadmill_pic1Low back pain occurs in 8 out of 10 people in the human race at sometime during life. Most will recover from the acute (sudden onset) pain but often it will last for months or years.

By, Tim Eckard


If your low back pain lasts for more than three months, it is defined as chronic pain. Of course, chronic low back pain can significantly impact your ability to work, recreate, and enjoy life. Most agree that patients with chronic low back pain require a multidisciplinary approach. There are often physical, psychological, and social issues involved with chronic pain. With respect to management of pain and the recovery of function (your ability to perform daily activities), a new study was published in 2006, that concluded that back stabilization exercises can decrease pain and improve function better than hands-on therapy or patient education alone. A lumbar stabilization program consisting of specific exercises that target the stabilizing muscles of the low back was the key treatment intervention.

Specifically, the transversus abdominus, the multifidus muscles and the pelvic floor and diaphragm muscles, were trained in this study. The patients were involved in the treatment program for 10 weeks and significant benefits were noted 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after treatment intervention. Physical therapists are the healthcare provider of choice when it comes to conservative management of problems like chronic low back pain. Most physical therapists agree that an exercise program is an important component of the rehabilitation process.
