Effects of Unstable Shoes on Trunk Muscle Activity, Lumbar Spine Kinematics and Pain in Patients With Low Back Pain

2015-11-17 21:08:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Aim: To compare trunk muscle activity, lumbar spine range of motion (ROM) and LBP during gait using an unstable shoe (Intervention group) and a conventional stable control shoe (Control Group).

Design: Randomized Controlled Trial. Setting: A Biomechanics laboratory. Population: Patients with Low Back Pain.

Description

Background: An unstable shoe was developed as a walking device to strengthen the lower extremity muscles and reduce joint loading. A large number of studies have reported increased electromyographic (EMG) activity throughout the gait cycle in most of the lower limb muscles, and significant kinematic changes in the lower extremity. However, no studies have investigated the effects of wearing (1 month) unstable shoes on 1) spine kinematics, 2) trunk muscle activity and 3) Low Back Pain (LBP) during gait in Patients with chronic LBP.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of persistent pain and discomfort in the BACK and the LEG following lumbar surgery, often seen in patients enrolled in pain centers.

Pain associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR in CHILDBIRTH. It is caused primarily by UTERINE CONTRACTION as well as pressure on the CERVIX; BLADDER; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Labor pain mostly occurs in the ABDOMEN; the GROIN; and the BACK.

Acute or chronic pain in the lumbar or sacral regions, which may be associated with musculo-ligamentous SPRAINS AND STRAINS; INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; and other conditions.

Acute or chronic pain located in the posterior regions of the THORAX; LUMBOSACRAL REGION; or the adjacent regions.

Inflammation of the SACROILIAC JOINT. It is characterized by lower back pain, especially upon walking, fever, UVEITIS; PSORIASIS; and decreased range of motion. Many factors are associated with and cause sacroiliitis including infection; injury to spine, lower back, and pelvis; DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS; and pregnancy.
