This study is to evaluate the influence of the exercise program for 12 weeks on 30 patients over age of 60with degenerative lumber disease under the prescribed medication of P Family physician in seoul. The exercise program for 12 weeks executed for the experiment group(n=15) for 55 minutes 3 times per week, consist of the education of elderly health care and exercises for lower back pain, while the comparison group(n=15) took medicine for relief from chronic degenerative lumbar disease, like the experiment group,and both groups were banned from doing any exercise except executing the program. Algometer(JTECH Medical, USA), a per and post measurement tool of the program, was applied to measure the low back pain two times and Dualer IQ(JTECH Medical, USA) to measure a power lumber motion. Date collected from these tools were analyzed by Window SPSS/PC 11.0 for a mean and a SD in paired t-test(paired-samples t-test). All statistical significance level was set at ɑ=. 05. The result is as follow. (1) In the change of lower back pain degree, the mean fo change in the experiment group decreased more than it in the comparison group. However both groups showed statistically significant differences. (2) In the lumbar spine flexion and extension change for the joint operation capability and in the ROM(Range of Motion) analyzing of the sacrum hip, the mean increased more in the experiment group than in the comparison group, and there was statistically significant difference. It is concluded that the exercise program for 12 weeks employed in this study was appropriate for lumber function in the patients with degenerative disease and had a positive effect in lumber function in general.
