Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to clarify the factors associated with the persistence rate of home exercise (HE) to promote an improvement in treatment results post-operation. Method: The participants were 17 people who had received single intervertebral laminotomy due to lumbar spinal disease. They were divided into two groups based on the persistence rate of HE in the investigation period (high group vs. low group). Self-efficacy, preonset physical activity level, and recognition of motor task were investigated. Result: There were significant differences in pre-onset physical activity level, self-efficacy, and recognition of motor task between the two groups. Conclusion: The factor that influenced the HE persistence rate of post-laminotomy patients was able to be determined, suggesting a plan for an HE guidance method to improve treatment results.
