Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
To study the effect of an educational back health intervention on knowledge, postural habits and trunk muscle endurance regarding low back pain prevention on a group of 12 to 13-year-old students in a 6 months’ follow-up. Three groups of 1st-grade secondary school students were selected. A control group (CG; n=22), an experimental group (EG1; n=36) who participated in a back-health educational programme (BHEP), and a 2nd experimental group (EG2; n=55) who participated in a BHEP plus a follow-up learning contract. The experimental groups improved the level of general knowledge after the intervention (p <0.001) and with a medium-high effect size (EG2 r = 0.75, EG1 r = 0.69). A lower percentage of problems in the lumbar area at the longitudinal level in the experimental groups was observed at 6 months’ follow-up compared to the CG. The proposed back health education programme is effective for up to 6 months.
