Segmental Mobilization vs Entire Spine Mobilization In Lumbar Spondylosis

2019-11-14 17:39:48 | BioPortfolio


This study will compare the effect of segmental spine mobilization and entire spine mobilization in the patients with lumber spondylosis.

There will be two groups ; experimental and control. Half of study group will receive segmental mobilization along with conventional treatment such as moist heat , soft tissue mobilization and traditional stretching exercises and half of study group will receive entire spine mobilization along with the same conventional treatment given to other group.


This is a randomized controlled trial which is being conducted in Pakistan Railway hospital enrolled total 40 participants diagnosed with lumbar spondylosis who fulfilled the inclusion criteria through sealed envelope method using purposive sampling technique into two groups I-e experimental (n=21) and control group(n=19).The treatment protocol administered to experimental group was Maitland entire spine mobilization along with other conventional treatments such as hot pack, soft tissue mobilization.

and home-based exercises (Bridging, knee to chest, Hamstrings stretching and TA stretching). While the control group received segmental spine mobilization along with same conventional treatment as mentioned above for 8 sessions. Physical therapy along with pharmaceutical management is effective in improving pain on NPRS, ODI values in patients with lumbar stenosis. Based on evidence that manual therapy interventions when used in combination with exercise therapy in clinical practice has beneficial effect in the treatment of degenerated lumbar spinal stenosis.

effects of 'specific segmental level 'spinal joint mobilization techniques in creating positive outcomes on pain NPRS measures and range of motion concluded that a single session of segmental joint mobilization can lead to pain reduction at both rest and with most painful offending movement.

Manual therapy approaches such as Maitland mobilizations are more productive in the management of chronic low back pain, quality of function and lumbar spine range of motion in patients of lumbar spondylosis than traditional physical therapy interventions such as muscle stretching and spinal traction.

Osteophytes were the most numerous radiographic feature detected in patients with lumbar spondylosis, with greater occurrence in men. Intervertebral disc space narrowing was more prevalent in women than men. Both distinctive radiographic features presence increased with increasing age. Disc space reduction seemed more strongly related with chronic low back pain than osteophytosis, especially in men and disc space narrowing at 2 or more segments appeared more powerfully associated with low back pain than disc space reduction at only 1 intervertebral segment.

Maitland posteroanterior spinal mobilizations are performed by a therapist on symptomatic segments after assessment compared with mobilization treatment given on any random spinal segment in patients suffering with chronic low back pain. The results were greater degree of immediate reduction of pain in patients receiving posteroanterior mobilization on symptomatic segment rather than any random segments in offending movement direction.

LIPOLYSIS of stored LIPIDS in the ADIPOSE TISSUE to release FREE FATTY ACIDS.
