Purpose of study: To study the efficacy of management protocol devised based on clinico- radiological correlation for treatment of low back pain disorders by interventional spinal blocks.
Methods: A prospective study of 227 patients who underwent the procedure based on the designed management protocol was done. Patients were analysed pre operatively and at 6 months on the basis of VAS, SF 36 and Modified Oswestry Disability Index scores.
Results: The average MODI pre op was 51.13 [SD= 11.7722] which reduced to 29.88 [SD= 15.5607]. The average PCS and MCS pre operatively for SF 36 were 24.08 [SD= 5.9655] and 54.11 [SD= 4.5511] respectively and the post op values were 39.27 [SD= 10.5573] and 52.21 [SD= 5.5587]. Average pre-op VAS score was 5.05 [SD= 0.9344] and post op was 2.83 [SD= 1.5476]. All the above values were statistically significant. [P value < 0.05] when compared with paired t test. The results were considered efficacious in 59.91% with post op VAS score less than or equal to 3.
Conclusion: Appropriate selection criteria, clinical severity of pain and disability are the important parameters in decision making .We suggest an algorithm based on our clinical experience in management of low back pain disorders.
