Effects of a program for trunk strength and stability on pain, low back and pelvis kinematics, and body balance: a pilot study.
J Bodyw Mov Ther. 2008 Jan; 12(1):22-30.JB

Abstract

The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effects of trunk strength and stability training on body balance and low back and pelvis kinematics during gait in females. Six subjects volunteered to do 20 sessions of training. Data collection involved a qualitative pain grade test, low back stabilization tests, low back and pelvis kinematics, and body balance assessment. Results indicate the absence or decrease in the low back pain, and also an increase in the stabilization and strength of low back and pelvis complex. The 3-D kinematics showed statistically significant differences (p<0.05) when compared pre- to post-training. The body balance was improved as well as the range of motion (ROM) was improved for trunk rotation, pelvis inclination and low back flexion. The results suggest the influence of trunk strength and stability on low back and pelvis pain and kinematics as well as on body balance. Further studies with a larger sample and/or a control group must be conducted in an attempt to confirm this hypothesis.
