Water Aerobics Reduces Sick Leave due to Low Back Pain During Pregnancy

Populärvetenskaplig sammanfattning av projektet

390 gravida kvinnor erbjöds antingen vattengymnastik eller Friskis´och Svettis´Vänta-barn-gympa under graviditet. 266 ville delta och randomiserades till antingen vattengymnastik (n=132) eller Vänta-Barn-gympa (n=134). Grupperna skilde sig inte åt avseende ålder eller paritet. Däremot var det fler omföderskor i gruppen som inte fullföljd aktiviterna. Aktiviteterna skedde en gång/vecka, vanligen med start efter första ultraljudet, i grav.vecka 17-19. I genomsnitt deltog kvinnorna 13,5 gånger (spridning 4-19). 42% angav symtom från ländrygg och/eller bäcken. Dessa kvinnor var sjukskrivna i medeltal 63 dagar. Kvinnorna som deltog i vattengymnastik hade mindre symotom än de i gymnastikgruppen (p=.04). Ingen i vattengymnastikgruppen var sjukskriven på grund av ländryggsmärta jämfört med 6 kvinnor i gymnastikgruppen(p=0.3).Vattengymnastik visade sig alltså minska behovet av sjukskrivning för ländryggsmärta och kan rekommenderas för gravida kvinnor.
