Background: Physiotherapists treat patients with nociceptive mechanical low back pain and are sometimes asked to evaluate lifting capacity with The isoinertial Lifting Evaluation Test (PILE). In treatment often motor control training is used that involves exercises without outer loading but maybe exercises with outer loading could be more effective since it targets hypertrophy.Aim: To investigate if lifting capacity measured with PILE is more effective with high-load- compared with low-load motor control training. A second aim was to investigate correlations between PILE, a static two-hand-lift test and movement control tests. Methods: 70 patients were randomized to low- or high-load (using deadlift) motor control training. Before and after the training period they performed PILE, static two-hand-lift test and movement control tests. Repeated measures ANOVA was used to analyse results between and within groups. Spearman’s correlation analysis was used to analyse the relationships between PILE, static two-hand-lift and movement control tests.Results: Neither significant improvements were seen after the training period between groups (p=0.15) or within groups (low-load training p=0.60, high-load training p=0.77). PILE significantly correlated with the static two-hand lift test (rs =0.42, p≤0.001) but not with the number of passed movement control tests (rs= -0.12, p=0.33).Conclusion: The participants performed better at baseline and follow-up compared with other studies with participants with unspecified low back pain. High-load motor control training was not more effective than low-load motor control training for improvement in lifting capacity and none improved lifting capacity evaluated with PILE. Key words: Lifting capacity, PILE, rehabilitation, training.
