Abstract

Low back pain (LBP) or low back pain is one of the musculoskeletal disorders caused by low body activity. LBP is one of the complaints felt by some workers, increasing at the age of 50. Health education is a general health education activity aiming to awaken and change people's attitudes and behaviour to achieve the desired level of health and increase public knowledge of an object through their senses. This study aimed to determine the effect of health education on the level of knowledge of low back pain patients about how to lift weights. The research design used a quasi-experimental study using One Group Pretest-Posttest Design. This study's sample was all 31 patients with low back pain in the Polyclinic of Kabanjahe Hospital. The study results with the Paired T-Test, with P = 0.000, showed a clear difference regarding weight lifting techniques in patients with low back pain before and after health education. Health education advice on weight lifting techniques for low back pain patients is more often done to increase insight and understanding about disease prevention, shallow back pain.
