The purpose of this study is to determine if trunk neuromuscular control strategies are changed by therapeutic exercises emphasizing core stabilization.
Hypothesis: measures of trunk control will demonstrate 'construct-validity'. This will be tested using a known group method demonstrating:
- no significant change in motor control measures within the untreated, healthy control group.
- significant changes within the low back subjects who demonstrate clinically meaningful improvements.
A growing body of evidence suggests that poor neuromuscular control of the lumbopelvic region is an important finding in a large number of patients with recurrent and chronic low back pain and may play a role in recurrence of symptoms. Despite findings of altered trunk motor control in individuals with low back pain, the neuromuscular strategies underlying these alterations have not been satisfactorily characterized. The aims of this study are to(1) identify which neural control strategies are altered following a rehabilitation program that emphasizes trunk control and stability using a motor learning approach and (2) provide preliminary evidence of a link between hypothesized mechanism and effectiveness for programs designed to improve trunk control.

This study will compare the effects of 2 exercise programs including core stabilization exercise and general trunk strengthening exercise programs on trunk muscle activity, physical dysfun...
The incidence of chronic nonspecific low back pain is the highest in the world population and can lead to disability. One of the standards treatments for this condition is the segmental st...
Abstract. Insufficient motor control mechanism of transversus abdominus and multifidus muscles is the most important cause of the chronic nonspecific low back pain (CNLBP). Recently, appli...
Automobile assembly workers repeatedly place burdens on their lumbar regions, which that can lead to mechanical chronic low back pain.
Hippotherapy is a form of therapeutic exercise for conservative treatment of lumbar spine segmental instability and/or hypomobility in subjects with low back pain (LBP).
Blocking the lumbar or lumbosacral spine with a custom-made rigid lumbar brace, based on the mechanical origin of active discopathy, is a therapeutic option for low back pain, but no study has yet def...
Although pessimistic beliefs about back pain are associated with low back pain and disability, our understanding of their role in the natural history of the condition is limited. This study examined t...
Patients with low back pain (LBP) have reduced core muscle geometry and impaired postural balance. Impaired trunk control was shown to be associated with poor balance and limited functional mobility i...
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.
Sensing of noxious mechanical, thermal or chemical stimuli by NOCICEPTORS. It is the sensory component of visceral and tissue pain (NOCICEPTIVE PAIN).
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
