The Effect Of A Neurodynamic Treatment On Nerve Conduction In Clients With Low Back Pain
The Effect Of A Neurodynamic Treatment On Nerve Conduction In Clients With Low Back Pain

The purpose of this study is to determine if a certain treatment for low back pain can change the way nerves in the leg send messages. Specifically, the investigators will examine whether a particular type of physical therapy treatment for individuals with low back pain (neurodynamic techniques) changes the speed that nerves send/receive signals to/from the leg, as compared to a different physical therapy treatment.

Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Low Back Pain
  • Other: Exercise
    Transversus abdominus exercise
  • Other: Mobilizations
    The physiotherapist will perform mobilizations to the L-spine and SI joints with the participant in a specific position.
  • Active Comparator: Mobilizations
    The physiotherapist will perform mobilizations to the L-spine and SI joints with the participant in a specific position.
    Intervention: Other: Mobilizations
  • Active Comparator: Exercise
    The physiotherapist will teach the participant how to tighten the transversus abdominus muscle. The participant will be asked to do a series of these exercises.
    Intervention: Other: Exercise
