Effect of balloon blowing exercise in 90/90 bridge position with ball on chronic nonspecific low back pain
Sini S Nair and Dr. K Mohanraj
Non-specific low back pain is the universal term that refers to any type of back pain in the lumbar region that is not related to severe pathology and does not have a specific cause. Impaired kinematics of diaphragm and pelvic floor muscle and changes in breathing pattern were observed in patient with back pain undergoing a motor task. Many factors are potentially involved with suboptimal respiration and suboptimal (faulty) posture and may be associated with musculoskeletal complaints such as low back pain, and/or sacroiliac joint pain. Only limited researches are available regarding the effect of integration of Diaphragm strengthening exercise with other core muscles strengthening in management of chronic Nonspecific LBP.
Methods: 30 subjects were selected by simple random sampling method and divided into two groups of 15 in each. Group A treated with Balloon blowing exercise and Core stability exercises and Group B treated with Core stability exercises. Baseline data were assessed on the basis of VAS and Oswestry Disability Index post test results were obtained after four weeks of treatment.
Results: The results showed that there was statistically significant difference between the effect of Balloon blowing exercise and Core stability exercises with Core stability exercises alone in management of Chronic Non-specific Low back pain.
Conclusion: It has been concluded that Integration of Balloon blowing exercises with core stability exercises is more effective than Core stability exercise alone in chronic Nonspecific Low back pain.
