About

The aim of this randomized controlled trial will be to determine the effectiveness of ELDOA for treating lumbar disc protrusion. Two randomized groups of patients with lumbar disc protrusion will be treated with conservative physical therapy and the experimental group will be given ELDOA, in addition. Both, male and female patients meeting the inclusion criteria will be included. Patients having concurrent malignancy, infection, trauma or any bony deformity will be excluded

Full description

The study is aimed at determining the effects of ELDOA in treating disc protrusion at lumbar region and is being conducted in Max Rehab & Physical Therapy Centre Islamabad and Pakistan Railway General Hospital, Rawalpindi (March 2019-June 2019). Sample size of the study is 34 with confidence interval of 95% and power of 0.8. 30 patients were screened and 29 were included in the study on the basis of inclusion criteria. Sealed envelope contained total 34 questionnaires, 17 for each group. Patients were allocated randomly on the basis of group mentioned on the Performa. Similar conservative rehabilitation protocol was designed for both control and experimental group except for experimental group had ELDOA Exercises in addition. Patients were examined at 1st visit before administration of any treatment and at 4th visit which was also the last one (after completing 4 sessions at alternate days). Baseline evaluation for demographics and symptomatology was taken. Self-reported questionnaire, ODI, NPRS, lumbar ROM and SLR were recorded at first and fourth visit for comparison. 26 patients completed the study while 1 patient from control group and 2 patients from experiment group were lost to follow up and were considered drop outs.
