ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: This study was conducted to verify the effects of a functional correction of the pain of patients with chronic low back pain(CLBP), and to examine the effect of dysfunctional factors on health-related quality of life. METHODS: A preliminary survey was first conducted on 90 patients with CLBP after functional orthodontic treatment. Some revised questionnaires were also prepared. The survey was distributed for approximately eight weeks, and 215 copies were used as the final analysis data, except for questionnaires that were inadequate, error or non-response. RESULTS: Path analysis using the structural equation model of CLBP patients showed a positive correlation between all the path coefficients and the potential factors. The multidimensional relationship between pain and dysfunction after orthognathic treatment was confirmed using three subdivisions of the pain variables as independent variables and the dysfunctional variables as the dependent variables. Multiple regression analysis was performed to examine the effects of pain on the dysfunction. To identify the multidimensional relationship between dysfunction and the health-related quality of life, eight sub-factors of dysfunctional variables were set as the independent variables, and multiple regression was analyses were performed with the dependent variables of the health-related quality of life. CONCLUSION: This study examined the structural and influence relationships of the functional correction with pain, dysfunction, and health-related quality of life. The results, suggest that a functional orthodontic treatment can be used as a positive program for the health-related quality of life. In addition, this study is meaningful in that it provieds useful information for intervention such as psychosocial change of patients.
