The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of rehabilitation of the dynamic muscle (RDM®) in back pain and postural balance of industrial operators. The sample consisted of industrial operators, individuals with low back pain, referred to the industry of Physical Therapy. After the screening criteria of inclusion and exclusion, 82 individuals were randomly selected and divided at random in: experimental group (GE, n = 41, age = 41 ± 4 years, body mass index (IMC) = 26.46 ± 3 , 25) and control group (CG, n = 42, age = 42 ± 5 years, IMC = 26.47 ± 3.34).
The GE was part of treatment with RDM. The CG was composed of individuals who did not participate in any physical therapy treatment during the search. The procedures used for evaluation were: back pain (Borg scale) and postural balance (pedana stabilometric and posturométrica). The process of intervention by the RDM had a duration of 20 minutes, frequency of twice a week and was extended for 12 weeks, and the systematic treatment performed on 4 occasions.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of rehabilitation of the dynamic ;(RDM) in balance and balance of industrial operators. The sample consisted of industrial operators, individuals with low back pain, referred to the industry of Physical Therapy
the treatment with RDM reflected in significant improvement in back pain and postural balance of industrial operators.
- In intra-group comparison, the paired t test or Wilcoxon showed, respectively, a significant improvement (p <0.05) in the variables back pain (p = 0.0001) and postural balance (p = 0.0001) in GE. [ Time Frame: three months ]
- Kruskal Wallis test followed by the confidence interval (CI) showed significant improvements in favor of GE's post-test compared to post-test of the GC (back pain: CI: -115.58 / -48.66; postural balance: CI: -68.81 / -1.89). [ Time Frame: three months ]
