Abstract [en]

AbstractBackground: People with low back pain often avoids, because of fear of pain, daily activities where the back burdens, leading to fear of movement and impaired functioning. Maladaptive compensatory movement patterns, so-called uncontrolled movement (UCM), are common in chronic pain. Aim: The aim of the present study was to study the effects of exercise by uncontrolled movements according Comerford/Mottram in persons with chronic pain of nociceptive mechanical form. Method: A single subject experimental design with A-B-A design was chosen. Six persons with chronic low back pain with reduced control at the lumbar spine, fear of movement and impaired functioning were recruited for the study. Five persons completed the study and were given motor control exercises according Comerford/Mottram for low back pain twice a day for eight weeks. Result: The results between the persons varied, and four of the participants showed significant changes of the intervention. Two persons experienced increased fear of movement and one person experienced decreased fear of movement. Two persons experienced improved functional ability, but for one of the participants the function decreased. Pain intensity decreased by three participants and for one participant the pain increased. Conclusion: This SSED-study indicates that exercises of uncontrolled movements according Comerford/Mottram for a subgroup of people with chronic low back pain has an effect particularly on low back function and pain. Further studies on what effect motor control exercises according Comerford/Mottram has on this subgroup of persons with chronic low back pain is desirable.Keywords: chronic low back pain, fear of movement, functional ability, pain intensity, uncontrolled movement
