Objective: To study the rehabilitation effect of exercise with soft tissue manipulation therapy for patients with lumbar muscle strain. Methods: Patients with lumbar muscle strain who met the inclusion criteria for study were randomly divided into control and experimental groups. Conventional therapy (i.e., triple therapy of needle, moxibustion, and cupping jar) was implemented for control group patients with lumbar muscle strain, whereas the combination therapy of exercise with manipulation was implemented for experimental group patients with lumbar muscle strain. Pain levels of the two groups of patients were graded using the VAS score, and finally, the rehabilitation effect of the two groups of patients was evaluated. Comparative analysis was performed using SPSS17.0 software, t-test, variance and χ2 test, and other statistical methods. Results: After treatment, there is a significant difference in average visual analogue scale (VAS) score between experimental group and control group, which meets P < 0.05; difference in joint range of motion between experimental group patients and control group patients was P < 0.05; the total treatment efficiency of experimental group patients was 99%, whereas that of control group was 79%. Conclusion: Rehabilitation effect of exercise with soft tissue manipulation therapy for lumbar muscle strain is more significant.
