Study design: randomized controled trail.Background: Backpain is a common disorder that affects the cortical reorganisation, which leads to att change in proprioception and sensibility in tactil stimulation. Objective: To examine the relationship between results from a two-point diskrimination test and results from motor control tests in patients with low back pain and examine the effects of high- and low-load motorcontrol training on two-point discrimination.Method: Seventy people with chronic nociceptive mechanical low back pain was randomized to high- and low-load motorcontrol training . Participants were offered 12 treatment sessions over an 8-week period. All participants were also provided with education regarding pain mechanisms. Each participant completed a two-point discrimination test and a battery of seven motorcontrol tests at baseline and after completion of the training period. Two-point discrimination measure was done with a caliper that was placed horizontally on segments L2 - L5. Spearman's correlation analysis was used to determine the association between two-point discrimination and motorcontrol tests. ANOVA analysis was used to compare efficacy between the groups over time. Results : two-point discrimination improved significantly in both groups over time (p≤0.001), independent of treatment (p=0.539) There was no correlation between the performance of motorcontrol tests and the results on two-point discrimination (rs = 0.037) at baseline. Conclusion: There is no relationship between performance in motorcontrol tests and two-point discrimination. Patients with nociceptive mechanical low back pain improves in two-point discrimination after high- and low-load motorcontrol training.Key words:Deadlift, functional rehabilitation, motor learning, sensibility, stabilization exercises, subgrouping Two-point discrimination.
