Abstract

Introduction

A previous pilot study has shown that high load motor control training with the conventional deadlift exercise can reduce pain intensity and activity limitation in patients with persistent low back pain. However, it is still unknown which variables characterize the ideal patient for this exercise.

Aim

The aim of this study was to explore variables influencing success or failure of eight weeks of high loadmotor control training with the conventional deadlift exercise for patients with persistent mechanical low back pain.

Method

The study design was a prospective cohort study of patients with persistent mechanical low back pain(n=35). The intervention consisted of eight weeks of training with the conventional deadlift exercise. Possible predictive variables were collected at baseline. To discriminate patients with a successful or failed outcome of treatment, change in the patient-specific functional scale was used and a cut-off at 50 %improvement was set. Of the 35 patients, 15 were categorized as treatment success (≥50 % improvement) and 20 patients as treatment failure (<50 % improvement).

Results

No variables at baseline were recognized as possible predictors of successful or failed treatment.

Conclusion

From the results of this study it appears that none of the variables in this study could influence success or failure of high load motor control training with the conventional deadlift exercise. However, the conventional deadlift could be considered a potent exercise when administered by a PT well experienced in resistance training and analyzing movement patterns.
