Low back strengthening for the prevention and treatment of low back pain. Br J Sports Med.

Segmental stabilization and muscular strengthening in chronic low back pain ‐ a comparative study

Evaluation of specific stabilizing exercise in the treatment of chronic low back pain with radiologic diagnosis of spondylolysis or spondylolisthesis. EMG recordings of abdominal and back muscles in various standing postures: Treatment protocol in the segmental stabilization and superficial strengthening groups.

A motor control evaluation of transversus abdominis. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Groups were instructed not to participate in any other physical program during the study and not to exercise while at home.

The McGill pain questionnaire consists of a list of 78 pain descriptors organized into 4 major classes sensory, fkr, evaluative, and miscellaneous and 20 subclasses, each made up of at least 2 and at most 6 words, to which are assigned intensity values. Exercice and chronic low back pain: Hides 16 identified selective atrophy of the LM after the first episode of back pain; the atrophy was unlikely to revert without specific training, and the xeercise muscular stability predisposed an individual to further episodes of low back pain.

According to Jull and Richardson 30 and Richardson et al. One important risk factor for lubopelvic back pain is weakness of superficial trunk and abdominal muscles, 5 - 9 and strengthening of these muscles is often associated with significant improvements of CLBP, as well as with decreased functional disability.

The test of the abdominal drawing in action in a prone position, monitoring the contraction of TrA with pressure biofeedback unit. Ecercise techniques lessened pain and reduced disability.

The regimen yielded significant pain and functional capacity improvements, which were also demonstrated by other studies.

These tests demonstrated that individuals with low back pain have an impaired ability to depress the abdominal wall. Table 2 Patient's clinical and demographic data, according to group. A study in mechanical engineering.

Higher values suggest more intense pain. Therapdutic protocols addressing both the superficial and the deep muscles seem to be effective in the treatment of CLBP.

Segmental stabilization and muscular strengthening in chronic low back pain ‐ a comparative study

Inefficient muscular stabilization of the lumbar spine associated with low back pain: This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Participants were assessed at baseline and at the end of the treatment by an investigator physiotherapist who was blinded to the randomization, the severity of pain, functional disability, and TrA activation capacity.

Both treatments were effective in relieving pain and in decreasing functional impairment, but only the SS treatment improved TrA muscle activation.

Our hypothesis was that the lumbar stabilization would be more efficient than the muscle strength in the improvement of chronic low back pain. Spinal unloading after abdominal exercises. Four patients were excluded for rheumatologic disorders and one for surgical reasons.

The better improvement in all variables yielded by the SS relative to ST may be explained by the hierarchical structure of the muscular control system. The second system is formed by the superficial muscles, which secondarily stabilize the spinal cord, further minimizing compressive forces. Trunk muscle strength during concentric and eccentric ecercise The gauge contains The relative gain with treatment was calculated with the following equation:
