Abstract

INTRODUCTION
To examine how resistance training changes inflammatory factors and muscular functions with chronic low back pain patients due to herniated lumbar disc.
METHOD
Participants of this study were 20-30's male patients with herniated lumbar disc (8 non-exercise group and 8 exercise group). Exercise and physical therapy were conducted for exercise group and 8 weeks of physical therapy program was conducted for non-exercise group. Inflammatory factors(PLA 2 C), muscular functions (lumbar extension strength and lumbar area balance), and subjective pain scale (VAS) were analyzed.
RESULT
PLA 2 activity of inflammatory changes in the exercise group was reduced, rather than the non-exercise group was increased, However, inflammatory factors did not show a statistically significant difference. Changes in muscular functions, both the balance of strength and balance by increasing the angle was the angle in the exercise group and decreased muscle strength and balance, or had no change in non-exericise group, which showed a statistically significant difference. VAS in both groups was reduced, which was statistically significant differences.
CONCLUSION
Resistance training application to patients with chronic low back pain due to lumbar herniated intervertebral disc showed to have more positive effects on muscular function (low back extensor strength and lumbar balance) and subjective pain scale (VAS) in exercise group than non-exercise group in this study.
Keywords: Herniated lumbar disc, resistance training, inflammatory factors, lumbar extension strength, back balance
