Abstract
Objective: To observe the effectiveness of William’s flexion exercises on pain, function and lumbar range of motion in Undergraduate Physiotherapy students with chronic non-specific low back pain.
Background: There is limited study available that supports that William’s flexion exercises can be used in treatment of chronic non-specific low back pain in Undergraduate Physiotherapy students.
Study Design: Experimental Study.
Method: Ethical clearance was taken from college and consent was taken from the 30 subjects diagnosed with chronic non-specific low back pain. Pre and Post outcome measures of VAS (Visual Analogue Scale) for pain, RMDQ (Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire) for functional disabilities and Lumbar ROM (using Schober’s test) for lumbar ranges were taken. All the subjects underwent 7 exercise.
Result: Mean values for VAS were 5.6 ± 0.74 and 3.04 ± 0.74, RMDQ were 4.63 ± 1.40 and 1.86 ± 1.0 and lumbar ROM – Lumbar flexion: 54.76 ± 2.83 and 64.08 ± 2.63 Right lateral flexion: 57.13 ± 2.57 and 67.21 ± 2.24 Left lateral flexion: 57.25 ± 2.33 and 63.07 ± 2.11.
Conclusion: In the present study it was found that Williams flexion exercises yielded significant effect in managing chronic non-specific low back pain in Undergraduate Physiotherapy students.
