Karpagam K and Sahaya Anas Livingsi J

Obesity is a growing public health concern. Obesity is one of several lifestyle factors that has been suspected of causing low back pain. Low back pain is an important clinical and public health problem. Digital interventions providing self-management information have been proposed as a promising mode of delivery for self-management interventions. A quantitative approach with pre-experimental research design was adopted for the present study conducted among 60 patients with low back pain among obese women by using purposive sampling technique. Demographic variables were collected pre-test was done by self-structured questionnaire. The investigator assessed the pre level of pain by using Quebec back pain disability scale. Then the group was trained to use mobile health application for 7 days. The mobile application consists of exercise, yoga poses, and diet-pattern. After one week the investigator assessed the post-test level of pain by using same Quebec back pain disability scale. The data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. After intervention the experimental group value of posttest ‘t’ test value of t=21.547 was found to be statistically highly significant at p<0.001 level. Hence the findings of present study concluded that was significantly improvement in the post test level of reduced pain in the experimental group which clearly infers that digital support intervention on self-management of low back pain was found to be effective in reducing the level of low back among obese women
