Abstract
Objective: To find the effect of slow Suryanamaskar on Peak expiratory flow rate in 10-15year old school going children at the end of 4 weeks.
Background: Non specific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) is defined as low back pain not attributable to recognizable known specific pathology and which persists for 12 weeks or more. NSCLBP is defined as pain, muscle tension, or stiffness localized below the costal margins (ribs) and above the inferior gluteal folds. Pilates method was developed by Joseph H Pilates which emphasizes recruitment and strengthening of the core muscles, flexibility and breathing to promote stability and control of movement. It focuses on maintaining a neutral spine, pelvic and spinal stability. Conventional exercises therapy is a management used widely in low back pain. It includes dynamic strengthening exercises which activates extensor and flexor muscle groups.
Outcome Measure: Mini Wright Peak Flow Meter
Method: The study included 65 subjects both males (4) and Females (61). Training was giving to them for a total period of 4 weeks.
Result: The PEFR values were improved with pre-test mean of 259.89 to 284.61 with a SD of 53.64 to 51.97.
Conclusion: This study concludes that slow suryanamaskar technique is effective in improving peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) in 10-15 year old school going children at the end of 4 weeks.
