Comparison of pilates breathing exercise and diaphragmatic breathing exercise on pulmonary function and quality of life in chronic low back pain patients

Author: SUBASRI PALANICHAMY, RAJESWARI
Abstract: Low back pain (LBP) is a common musculoskeletal disorder affecting 70–85% of people. Chronic low back pain (CLBP) represents one of the major causes of disability worldwide. More than 80% of all health care costs can be attributed to CLBP. Various exercises have been proposed to mitigate CLBP. However, to date, not one exercise has been shown to be concentrated on pulmonary function in chronic low back pain patients. This study compares the efficiency between Pilates breathing exercise (PBE) and Diaphragmatic breathing exercise (DBE) on pulmonary function and quality of life. OBJECTIVE: Is to compare the effects of pilates breathing exercise and diaphragmatic breathing exercise on pulmonary function in CLBP patients. METHOD: 50 remaining CLBP subjects were recruited and randomly divided into two groups of 25 subjects each. Group A received pilates breathing exercise and Group B received diaphragmatic breathing exercise, respectively. The treatment was given 3 times/week for 6 weeks. Pre and post intervention pulmonary function (PFM) and quality of life (SF-36) measures were noted. RESULT: Both groups showed improvement during post-treatment session with significant improvement in PBE. Data analysis revealed statistically significant difference between both the groups (p<0.05) and proved that pilates breathing exercise is more effective than diaphragmatic breathing exercise in chronic low back pain. CONCLUSION: This study concluded that although both pilates breathing exercise and diaphragmatic breathing exercise are effective in pulmonary function, quality of life is more effective and efficient with Pilates breathing exercise in CLBP.
