This quasi-experimental research investigates the effects of promoting physical activity in daily lifeThis quasi-experimental research investigates the effects of promoting physical activity in daily lifeprogram on pain and disability in patients with non-specific low back pain. The sample was 60 patients with non-specific low back pain selected from the Out Patient Department of Nakhon Phanom Hospital. Convenience sampling was employed to recruit the sample. Simple random sampling was used to assign thesample to an experimental group (n=30) and the control group (n=30). The experimental group receivedphysical activity in daily life program five times a week, 30 minutes each time, for 6 weeks. The researcherconducted the activity program by homes visit and then followed this up by monitoring performance bytelephone conversation. The control group received routine nursing care. Numerical rating scale and theRoland-Morris Disability Questionnaire were used to assess the outcomes. Data were analyzed using MannWhitney U test.
The findings showed that statistically the experimental group, who received physical activity in dailylife program, had significantly less low back pain and disability than those in the control group (p< .001). The findings support the hypothesis that physical activity in daily life program reduced low back pain anddisability in patients with non-specific low back pain.
