The purpose of this study was to verify the low-back pain alleviation effect of exercising with a stretch pole. The angle of the hip joint motion range and finger-floor distance of 11 staff members of the long-term care ward with low-back pain were measured before and a month and two months after the exercise. Also, they were asked about their subjective degree of low-back pain before and after the exercise.
As a result of this study, the hip joint motion range and the finger-floor distance were significantly enlarged after the exercise and the alleviation of low-back pain was recognized. The exercise using a stretch pole showed a possible effect of raising the flexibility of the hamstring muscles and alleviating low-back pain.
