Summary

The study is a single-blind controlled randomized clinical trial.

Description

Patients will be recruited and then randomly assigned by an external collaborator to the experimental group or to the control group. To the patients that belong to the experimental group will be asked to watch a video showing a person carrying out some exercises (12 exercises: 3 of stretching, 3 of core stability, 3 of mobilization and 3 of functional) and then they will have to practice them.On the other hand, to the patients that belong to the control group will be given a brochure with the same exercises the patients of the experimental group received through the video. Both groups will have to watch the video or read the brochure and repeat the exercises 5 times per week for 3 weeks. Patients will be evaluated before the treatment (T0), three weeks after the beginning (T1) and 4 months upon the end of it (T2). The evaluation will consist in the administration of the Oswestry Disability Index, of the Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia, of the Numerical Rating Scale and of the Medical Outcomes Study Short Form 36.

A physiotherapist will instruct the patients about the exercises while a second one blinded about the belonging group of patients, will administer the evaluation scales.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Exercises that stretch the muscle fibers with the aim to increase muscle-tendon FLEXIBILITY, improve RANGE OF MOTION or musculoskeletal function, and prevent injuries. There are various types of stretching techniques including active, passive (relaxed), static, dynamic (gentle), ballistic (forced), isometric, and others.

Technique based on muscle relaxation during self-hypnotic exercises. It is used in conjunction with psychotherapy.

Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.

Therapeutic exercises aimed to deepen inspiration or expiration or even to alter the rate and rhythm of respiration.

The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.
