About

Low back pain affects many people and involves high medical costs. For this reason, we wish to test the efficacy of dry needling VS ischaemic compression in patients with non-specific low back pain. To this end, an investigation was carried out on 40 patients diagnosed with this ailment, divided into two groups by randomisation to assess the intensity of pain, range of movement, pain threshold to pressure and quality of life, measuring these variables prior to the intervention, immediately, at 48 hours and one week after the intervention.
