Brief Summary:
Determine the improvement in nonspecific low back pain patients with osteopathic techniques (Body Adjustment Protocol) and know changes in stabilometric measures analyzed with a stabilometric platform (Footscan®).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lower Back Pain Other: Osteopathic Other: Auto Stretching Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Fifty patients participate in this study (25 experimental group with body adjustment protocol of osteopathy and 25 control group). For a first objective of this study, all the patients determine if the osteopathic approach to the body adjustment approach will improve low back pain (Oswestry Questionnaire). For the second aim, the investigators want to know if there are changes in the distribution of body weight in lower limbs in group experimental and control group, analyzed with a stabilometric platform (Footscan®).

The experimental group is treated with osteopathy, three sessions (20 minutes/session) and a frequency one session/week. The treatment osteopathic is the body adjustment protocol. In the other hand, the control group made 2 stretching global postures once a week (10 minutes for each posture) for three weeks: the first was for the anterior muscular chain and the second posture to stretch the posterior muscle chain. Before treatment, immediately after the last session and a month later, are measured stabilometric parameters, height and Oswestry.

The analysis will be made with Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS Statistics) 22.0

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: OSTEOPATHIC PROTOCOL

Physiotherapist applies an osteopathic treatment in non-specific low back pain patients.

The experimental group is treated with osteopathy, three sessions (20 minutes/session) and a frequency one session/week. Osteopathic treatment osteopathic is a body adjustment protocol. This protocol adjusts the musculoskeletal disorders since neck to lower limbs in the experimental group. Before treatment, immediately after the last session and a month later, are measured stabilometric parameters, height and Oswestry.

Other: Osteopathic
Body adjustment in three sessions (20 minutes/session).
Other Names:
  • Manual Therapy
  • Muscle chains

Active Comparator: Auto Stretching
The patients realizes stretching protocol: two stretching global postures once a week (10 minutes for each posture) for three weeks: the first is for the anterior muscular chain and the second posture to stretch the posterior muscle chain. Before three stretching, immediately after the last session and a month later, are measured stabilometric parameters, height and Oswestry.
Other: Auto Stretching
The patients realize auto stretching in three sessions (20 minutes/session).
Other Name: Muscle chains




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Oswestry Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]
    Improvement of low back pain measured by Oswestry Questionnaire: The results of the lumbar scale Oswestry disability percentage will be obtained. Results of the initial measurement, final month of treatment and compared.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Centre of Pressure Displacement [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]

    Stabilometry used to assess Centre of Pressure Displacement. The stabilometric results will be obtained in percentages. The most important variables are the percentage of load anterior, load posterior, load right side and load left side.

    Results of the initial measurement, final month of treatment and compared.
