To determine the effectiveness of device–based therapy for low back pain.
Two different treatment protocols with David Spine Concept: Extended protocol: 24 sessions, devices: 110, 120, 130, 150. Short protocol: 16 sessions, devices: 110, 120. Patients exercised two times per week with 20-40% load, 20 reps, 4,5-5 sec. rep duration.
Outcome measures: disability (ODI), pain (VAS), functional status (strength, ROM).
In both programs there was statistically significant improvement in terms of disability, pain, and functional status after treatment.
