Relationships between muscle electrical activity and the control of inter-vertebral motion during a forward bending task
(Journal of Electro - myography and Kinesiology, 2018)
Muscle strengthening exercises are commonly used in primary care for the treatment of chronic, non-specific low back pain (CNSLBP) as it has been theorised that increased muscle activity contributes to the stabilisation ...
Relationships between paraspinal muscle activity and lumbar inter-vertebral range of motion
Control of the lumbar spine requires contributions from both the active and passive sub-systems. Identifying interactions between these systems may provide insight into the mechanisms of low back pain. However, as a first ...
Relationships between lumbar inter-vertebral motion and lordosis in healthy adult males: a cross sectional cohort study
(BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, 2016)
Background: Intervertebral motion impairment is widely thought to be related to chronic back disability, however, the movements of inter-vertebral pairs are not independent of each other and motion may also be related to ...
Novel assessment of the variation in cervical inter-vertebral motor control in a healthy pain-free population
(Scientific Reports, 2021)
Spinal control at intervertebral levels is dependent on interactions between the active, passive and neural control elements. However, this has never been quantifiable, and has therefore been outside the reach of clinical ...
Association of spinal manipulative therapy with changes in cervical motion segment interactions in patients with neck pain: an observational study with matched asymptomatic controls
(Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, 2021)
Objective: The objectives of this study were to determine (1) if maximal intervertebral range of motion (IV-RoMmax) and laxity interactions exist in the cervical spine during flexion, (2) if there are differences in IV-RoMmax ...
