Objective: To probe into the effect of resourcefulness education on postoperative rehabilitation of patients with lumbar disc herniation. 

Methods: A total of 100 patients with lumbar disc herniation were sorted into two groups, namely, observation group and control group, with 50 cases for each group. Control group was given routine health education, while the observation group was given resourcefulness education. The resourcefulness scale score, self-management behavior score, and Japanese Orthopaedic Association Scores (JOA) were compared between the two groups before and after intervention. 

Results: After intervention, the resourcefulness score, self-management behavior score, and JOA score were significantly higher in observation group than in control group (all P<0.05). 

Conclusion: The development of resourcefulness education is conducive to improving the resourcefulness level and self-management behavior of patients with lumbar disc herniation after operation, thereby improving the patients’ limb function.
