Título Effectiveness of an at-work exercise program in the prevention and management of neck and low back complaints in nursery school teachers
Información bibliográfica July 2009, Vol.47, No.4, p.349-354. 40 ref.
Resumen The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of an exercise programme in the prevention and management of low back and neck pain in nursery school teachers. Seventy-one nursery school teachers working in nine locations were randomly divided into two groups. All the teachers received an ergonomics booklet, while teachers in the intervention group additionally received an extension-oriented exercise programme conducted by a physiotherapist. Data were collected at baseline and at a two-month follow-up. At follow-up, significant improvements were observed in the intervention group as compared to the control group for all the outcomes evaluated.
