Paper Abstract

Usually, lumbosacrat aria is a very mechanical stressed aria because of insufficient adaptation to the verticality and because of many other getting in professional field (high physical stress, sedentary profession) or in daily living. Because of all these facts and the other can develop `low back pain syndromes' in variable places dorsolumbar, lumbar or lumbosacrat aria, in different degree of disability interesting the muscles, fasciae, aponevrosis tendons, capsules and ligaments. Specially the muscular tissue is in high sufferings in paravertebral lumbosacrat place where we can find frequently contractor (usually secondary to the static vertebral troubles) or retractors; sometimes we discover morphopathological disorder in muscles with trigger and tender points--very painful and cause of a high percent of disability of lumbosacrat region. The aim of this research is to prove by clinic--functional tests the effects of laser- therapy and to notice the answer of all the soft tissue from lumbosacrat region and all the structures treated which respond after laser-therapy to kinetotherapy, comparing with the other kinds of physical therapy.
