Abstract

The patients in the Back-café group performed a succession of many daily tasks significantly better and moreover had less pain compared with both the Video and Training groups 2 years after lumbar spinal fusion. The Video group had significantly greater treatment demands outside the hospital system. This study demonstrates the importance of the inclusion of coping schemes and questions the role of intensive exercises in a rehabilitation program for spinal fusion patients.
