Resumen

Objetivos: El dolor lumbar y pelvico son problemas de salud prevalentes y la mayor causa de discapacidad y de gasto sanitario. Evaluar la efectividad de la diatermia para el dolor lumbopelvico.

Metodo: Se seleccionan 20 multifidus en sujetos con dolor lumbopelvico previo. Se desarrolla un estudio ciego con dos grupos aleatorizados , grupo A diatermia, grupo B diatermia placebo para comprobar la eficacia.

Resultados: El grupo tratado con diatermia no mostro diferencias significativas con el grupo placebo de manera aislada. Esta técnica rara vez se usa de manera aislada y se asocia frecuentemente a técnicas de propiocepcion o a fisioterapia. El grupo de diatermia mostro mejores valores en las correlaciones tensomiograficas.

Conclusiones: Se necesitan más estudios para incrementar el conocimiento de los efectos físicos de la diatermia en poblaciones con enfermedades prevalente como la lumbalgia
