Abstract

GAFFURI, Juliana et al. Physical exercise assessment as an analgesia factor in a sciatica experimental model. Rev Bras Med Esporte [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.2, pp.115-118. ISSN 1517-8692.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-86922011000200009.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of physical exercise (swimming and jumping), with and without overload, working in reducing the pain of rats undergone to an experimental model of sciatica. METHODS: 24 rats were divided into four groups: Placebo (GP), Swimming Group (NG) Swimming 10% Group (GN10) and Leap Group (GS). All groups were submitted to the experimental sciatica model and assessed for pain post-exercise for the Functional Disability Test and the Von Frey filament. RESULTS: In comparison within groups there were significant differences in the moments after injury with the pre-injury, for both assessment instruments. With Von Frey filament was observed a significant difference in group GN10 and GS in the final moments of evaluation. In comparisons between groups were not statistically significant differences obtained with any assessment instrument. CONCLUSION: Treatment with physical exercise was not effective in reducing pain in rats subjected to experimental sciatica model.
