The aim of this study was to demonstrate the impact, on chronic low back pain workers, of a short physical activity reconditioning program, outside the conventional health care structure. This prospective study was performed on 68 chronic low back pain patients divided into two groups by their usual doctor. The first group received a multidisciplinary care in a rehabilitation center for 114 h spread over four weeks. The other group received a reconditioning program composed of six hours of physical activity spread over two weeks. Our result suggested that both care programs resulted in improved physical and psychological parameters, and reduced pain intensity (p<0.001). Thus, a physical activity reconditioning program outside the conventional health care structure can reduce pain and disability as well as increase physical capacities as shown by better muscle endurance and flexibility.
