Abstract

Objective: It still remains unclear if lumbar supports are effective in the treatment of chronic low back pain. The objective of the present study was to assess and compare the short-term effect of extension-controlled lumbar support and elastic lumbar support on low back pain, lumbar flexibility and back-specific disability in chronic low back pain patients. We also investigated the factors affecting the lumbar support compliance.
