Ajit Dabholkar, Linda Raphy

The McKenzie method is a good active therapy option that includes both exercises and education for the treatment of patients with CLBP Methodology: 22 subjects with CLBP underwent McKenzie extension exercises for CLBP. Intervention program was carried out for 2 weeks, 8 sessions. Outcome measures evaluated were Rolland-Morris Low Back Pain and Disability Questionnaire, Modified Oswestry Low Back Pain Questionnaire, to test for endurance and recruitment of mutifidus was assessed. Conclusions: Extension based treatment program in McKenzie's derangement syndrome improves the recruitment of multifidus on the affected side, improves the endurance of back extensor muscles and reduced disability.
