Similar Improvements In Patient-Reported Outcomes For Non-Specific Low Back Pain Patients With And Without Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Symptoms Following A Structured Education And Exercise Therapy Program London Spine Lumbar Stenosis

This article investigates the impact of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) symptoms on treatment outcomes for people with nonspecific low back pain (NSLBP). The study analyzed data from 655 Danish participants in an education and exercise therapy program for NSLBP. Participants were classified as having comorbid LSS symptoms based on self-report. The results showed no significant differences in disability or back pain improvement between those with and without LSS symptoms. However, participants with LSS symptoms did experience slightly greater improvement in leg pain intensity. Overall, the study suggests that education and exercise therapy programs designed for NSLBP are likely beneficial for individuals experiencing LSS symptoms

Compared to those without LSS symptoms, patients with persistent NSLBP and LSS symptoms can expect similar improvements in disability and back pain intensity, and slightly greater improvements in leg pain intensity with treatment. Therefore, education and exercise therapy programs designed for NSLBP are likely helpful for those also experiencing LSS symptoms.

Abstract

Background: People with nonspecific low back pain (NSLBP) can also experience overlapping symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS), but the impact on treatment outcomes is unknown. This study investigated differences in treatment outcomes for disability, back pain intensity, and leg pain intensity following an education and exercise therapy program for NSLBP patients with and without comorbid LSS symptoms.

Methods: This was a longitudinal analysis of 655 Danish participants in the GLA:D® Back program; an education and exercise therapy program for people with persistent NSLBP. Participants were classified as having comorbid LSS symptoms based on self-report. Linear mixed models were used to assess differences in change in disability (Oswestry Disability Index [0-100]) and back and leg pain intensity (Numeric Rating Scale [0-10]) at 3-, 6-, and 12-months between those with and without LSS symptoms.

Results: 28% of participants reported LSS symptoms. No certain differences in change in disability or back pain intensity improvement were observed at any time-point between those with and without LSS symptoms. Participants with LSS symptoms had slightly greater improvement in leg pain intensity at 6- (-0.7, 95% CI -1.2 to -0.2) and 12-months (-0.6, 95% CI -1.2 to -0.1).

Compared to those without LSS symptoms, patients with persistent NSLBP and LSS symptoms can expect similar improvements in disability and back pain intensity, and slightly greater improvements in leg pain intensity with treatment. Therefore, education and exercise therapy programs designed for NSLBP are likely helpful for those also experiencing LSS symptoms.
