Summary: Preventive back school with participants from university academic circles

school to the predominantly academic clientele that is mainly distinguishable by the low average age, higher number of male participants in the movement oriented Programme, a higher degree of sports activities and high functional capacity. However, compared to the rest of the average Population, the group also exhibits a relatively higher annual and point prevalence of back pain and a relatively poor score in the general state of health. Therefore most of the work carried out in the back school emphasised the prevention of recurrent complaints like back pain and tension as well as the improvement of particular body qualities like back-friendly bearing, body posture and muscle training.

After one year there was a significant improvement among the participants in the back school, compared to the control group, regarding the general state of health, back pain, the intensity of back pain and visits to the doctor. Attendance at back school positively led to the improvement in the state of health of more than half of the participants. Active course elements like functional gymnastics, posture and movement training scored quite highly in the participant rating. This is a pointer to the importance of the design of back school courses and corroboration for the recommendations and studies on the prevention of back pain. Notwithstanding the propensity of a large number of the back school participants to be mindful of their backs, the gap between daily application and theory of back-school knowledge is still large. Specific results regarding back-friendly behaviour (e. g. weight-lifting) would be a starting point in putting more emphasis on specific contents of the back school courses in order to achieve better results at the implementation stage.
