Abstract

Prolonged sitting has been identified as one of the factors leading to nonspecific low back pain among students and stafis in university. Non-specific low back pain will also atfect the quality of life of the patient or university population. The impact of low back pain on quality of life can be due to the severity of pain. Exercise therapy is one of the mainstays in the management of non-specific low back pain. One of the most common exercise therapy for nonspecific low back pain is the McKenzie method, whereas the Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) exercise is seldom been used to treai non-specific low back pain cases. There were not many studies being done to compare these two techniques on its effectiveness for PNF and McKenzie method on non-specific low back pain. Objective: The purpose of the study is to find the effectiveness of PNF and McKenzie method on non-specific low back pain in quality of life. Design and Participants: ln this study, a randomised clinical trial method was involving 36 subjects (students and staffs) from the university population was randomly chosen to participate based on the selection criteria set by the study protocols. lntervention: The subjects were randomly assigned to three treatment groups: PNF group, McKenzie group and control group (hot pack and educational home exercise sheet) which underwent 12 treatment sessions distributed over three times in a week for four weeks duration. Measurement: Subjects were measured health-related quality of life by SF-12. Measurement was performed at three points: pre-test, mid-test and post-test. Repeated measures ANOVA were used to analyse the study results. The within-between groups analysis performed to analyse the difference between the effectiveness of three treatments based on the measurement time. Results: This study showed each treatment has significant improvement in health-related quality of life (p<0.05) after 4 weeks. However, there is no significant difference between PNF and McKenzie method (p>0.05) after 4 weeks
