Background: A wide range of interventional strategies such as surgery, drug therapy and non-medical interventions had been reported as the management protocol among patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Exercise therapy (ET) usually improves level of functional status among MSD patients and help them to better handle their life. Present case control study had been performed for assessment impact of a comprehensive ET in management of patients with musculoskeletal disorders.
Methods: One hundred twenty-three patients with musculoskeletal disorders were included in the present case control study between January 2015 and January of 2017. A study checklist was prepared by study investigators to gathering medical history and physical examinations data among study participants. More than demographic variables, referral reasons, resting systolic and diastolic blood pressure and drug history, a blood sample was taken after 12-14 hours fasting to measure fasting blood sugar, serum lipids including triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), high and low density lipoproteins of study participants. All tests were measured at the beginning and after completion of the ET protocol. The exercise therapy program comprised of 24 exercise sessions, scheduled over eight weeks.
Results: ET protocol significantly decreased BMI, triglycerides and mean of quadriceps, triceps and supra iliac subcutaneous fat thicknesses among our study participants.
Conclusion: ET protocol had significant impacts on clinical characters of patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Next multicentric studies with higher sample size are suggested for better assessment of ET protocol and using that as one part of MSD management.
