Abstract


Abstract: The aim of this study is to detect efficiency of kinesiotherapy with balance training aids in patients after the lumbar spine surgery and also familiarization with the use of balancing aids in connection with the activation of the deep stabilization system. The examined group consisted of 50 probands after lumbar spine surgery divided into two heterogeneous groups. In the first group was applied kinesiotherapy without balancing aids and in the second group kinesiotherapy using balancing training aids. We compared the activation of the deep muscle system in the both groups using assessment tests before and after therapy. Evaluating the results, we can state that the unstable platforms may accelerate and improve the quality activation of the deep stabilization system compared to exercises on stable platforms. It means that kinesiotherapy on balance training aids becomes more efficient than exercise on stable platforms. It is suitable therapy and also possible prevention of the development and progression of functional and degenerative changes in the lumbar spine.
