Effects of the lumbar stabilization exercise on scoliosis, local muscle area, VAS and muscle function in female university students
The research was carried out to investigate the effect of lumbar stabilization exercise in the multifidus area, the Cobb's angle and correlations of subjective VAS in the female university students who had participated in a lumbar stabilization exercise program. Thirty female university students aged 20-24 were taken spinal X-ray. Twenty who have abnormal Cobb's angle were diagnosed as an imbalance in their body and they were sorted into exercise group(n=12) and control group(n=8). The exercise program was proceeded for 8 weeks, 3 times/week and 90 minutes/time. The intensity of exercise were 40-50% HRR during 1-4 weeks, 50-60% HRR during 4-8 weeks. Deep muscle area, scoliosis, VAS, and Cobb`s angle were measured. The effects of muscular function test and correlation of the measurements were tested as follows. There were significant differences in area between the time of the multifidus muscle L1(left, right) and L5(left, right) in appearance. And in comparisons with among groups, there were significant differences in the L5 multifidus muscle. There was meaningful difference in VAS of exercise group. In case of the muscular function test by Isokinetic exercise, meaningful differences in peak torque were founded among the groups. And also, there were meaningful differences among groups as well. In conclusion, lumbar stabilization exercises have positive effects on cobb's angle, multifidus area, VAS and the improvement of muscular function. As the significant correlation was appeared between increases of multifidus area and decreases of VAS, it is possible to reduce pathological factors which appeared in the imbalances through increases of deep muscle by high lumbar stabilization exercise.
Key words: lumbar stabilization exercise, scoliosis, multifidus area, VAS, Cobb`s angle, isokinetic exercise
