Clinical Trial Summary

A randomized and controlled trial to people with low back pain who are divided into 2 groups of treatment: 1- people treated with a protocol of physical therapy techniques without magnetic field therapy; 2- people treated with the same protocol of physical therapy techniques adding a magnetic stimulation treatment. The interventions are conducted in 3 sessions provided during 3 weeks.The lumbar pain and disability are assessed before and after the intervention, and lumbar flexion and extension pain are assessed before and after each session in all the participants.


Clinical Trial Description

This study is a randomized controlled trial evaluating clinical effects of a protocol of Physical Therapy Treatment (PTT), via manual therapy and active mobilization, adding or not a magnetic field therapy in people with non-specific low back pain lasting at least 6 weeks. Participants were randomized to receive either a PTT protocol including a magnetic stimulation treatment or the same PTT protocol with a sham magnetic intervention. The interventions are conducted in 3 sessions provided during 3 weeks. Intervention: A description of the 2 groups of treatment: 1. - Experimental group 1: a protocol of physical therapy treatment including: - Manual therapy techniques for inhibition of piriformis, quadratus lumbar, and paravertebral muscles in prone position and bilaterally. - 2 functional techniques applied to the sacrum in prone position. - A myofascial release of ligaments inserted to the sacrum in prone position and bilaterally. - Manual therapy technique for inhibition of psoas-iliacus muscle in supine position and bilaterally. - Stretching techniques of piriformis, gluteal and paravertebral muscles in supine position and bilaterally. - Active gluteus maximus contraction in supine position bilaterally. To this protocol, a 15 minutes of magnetic field therapy treatment applied to the lumbosacral region in prone position is added. 2. - Experimental group 2: the same Physical Therapy Treatment protocol with a sham magnetic intervention applying in the same region with a disconnected device during 15 minutes. ;
