Aims: one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders among farmers is low back pain. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of corrective exercise training on low back pain disorder among farmers.
Materials and Methods: This research is a semi-experimental study that was conducted on farmers in Aq-Qala, Golestan Province, Iran in 2017. The statistical population of this study was all farmers in the central part of the city of Aq-Qala. The sample consisted of 100 farmers in the central city of Agh-Ghala were randomly divided into two groups, intervention (n=50) and control (n=50) groups. The instrument of research was Nordic questionnaire. The intervention group participated in an 8-session sports training program. Chi-square and McNemar tests were used and the collected data were analyzed by SPSS 18.
Findings: The prevalence of back pain among farmers in both intervention and control groups was 56% and 60%, respectively. There was a significant difference between the percentage of low back pain in the intervention group before and after the training of corrective exercise training (p=0.001). This difference was not significant in the control group (p=0.879). The intervention in the intervention group reduced the back pain by 24%.
Conclusion: Intervention of corrective exercise training can reduce the prevalence of low back pain among farmers.
