Clinical Trial Summary

The aim of the study is to determine the impact of early rehabilitation in patients after lumbar spine surgery using microdiscectomy on balance, postural stability and foot pressure distribution. The tests will be carried out at the Physical Effort Laboratory in GdaƄsk.

Clinical Trial Description

Back pain (LBP) has become a major public health problem. In the case of pain in the lumbar spine, conservative or surgical treatment is used. In conservative treatment, patients undergo an appropriate rehabilitation program or use painkillers / anti-inflammatory drugs. When conservative treatment is unsuccessful, patients based on the MRI image and neurosurgical consultation are referred to the lumbar spine microdiscectomy. Therefore, patients consciously and voluntarily can start research on the effect of supervised exercises to stabilize the lumbar spine after single-level lumbar spine microdiscectomy on pain reduction, pressure distribution, balance, posture control, and basic functional tests. Before the operation, during the first examinations, patients are informed about the ergonomic and behavioral procedure after the operation, and rehabilitation program. After surgery, a supervised exercise program begins three times a week for a month, lead by a qualified physiotherapist. Supervision is carried out online using generally available applications, including WhatsApp, messenger. After one month, patients are re-examined in the same way as before the surgery. The rehabilitation program after the microdiscectomy of the lumbar spine enables the voluntary extension of rehabilitation for another two months. During subsequent meetings with a physiotherapist, patients are taught new exercises that differ from week to week in terms of difficulty in performing, the number of repetitions, and the time to maintain tension. Moreover, in the third month of the rehabilitation program, exercises with the use of a sensorimotor disc are planned. After completing the rehabilitation program, patients are invited for follow-up examinations six months and one year after the end of rehabilitation. ;
