Such knowledge is relevant to understand potential mechanisms contributing to the maintenance and recurrence of LBP in rowers. For the first time, we evaluate the spatial distribution of erector spinae (ES) activity in rowers with ...

Publication date: Available online 19 July 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Ezgi Akar, Hakan SomayAbstractLumbar spinal stenosis is one of the primary causes of low back pain and is one of the primary causes of spinal surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis is classified as congenital, acquired and a combination of both. Although the symptoms of both groups are similar, their etiology and radiographic features demonstrate some differences. Our aim to compare morphological characteristics of congenital and acquired lumbar spinal. We have reviewed CT and T2 weighted MRI images of 100 lumbar spinal stenosis pati...

We report the injuries recorded over a period of 10 years in 156 Greek elite male and female gymnasts. A total of 2390 injuries were reported for a rate of 1,5 new injuries per year per athlete. Most commonly affected areas were the hip (18.5%), the ankle (16.5%), the lumbar spine (16%) and the foot (16%). The most frequent diagnosis was tendinitis (32%), followed by low back pain (20%), and sprains (12%). Fifteen athletes (9%) sustained serious injuries that required surgery. Rhythmic gymnasts had significantly more overuse type injuries compared to artistic gymnasts (p = 0.049). Gymnastics is a sport with a high incidenc...

Despite the high prevalence of low back pain (LBP) in rowers, there are few studies investigating changes in lumbar muscle activation in rowers with a recent history of LBP. Such knowledge is relevant to understand potential mechanisms contributing to the maintenance and recurrence of LBP in rowers. For the first time, we evaluate the spatial distribution of erector spinae (ES) activity in rowers with and without a recent history of LBP, using a novel application of high-density surface electromyography (HDEMG).

ConclusionOur findings indicate that suffering from asthma and/or COPD increases the risk of developing troublesome LBP, which highlights the importance to consider the overall health of people at risk of troublesome LBP and to take the multi-morbidity perspective into consideration. Future longitudinal studies are needed to confirm our findings.Graphic abstract These slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is a condition that commonly consumes many resources and creates economic burden for the health care system. Evidence-informed care is crucial to guide management and prevent unnecessary procedures, including diagnostic imaging. Conservative therapy is currently recommended as the first-line and the most cost-effective treatment. Antibiotic therapy and surgical procedures are considered last resort treatment options for CLBP. The aim of this article is to summarize CLBP options for nurse practitioners (NP).

Abstract Purpose: To translate, culturally adapt, and validate the Fear-Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire into Yoruba language. Materials and Methods: Translation and cultural adaptation of the Yoruba version of the Fear-Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire was carried out following the Guillemin criteria. One hundred and thirty-one individuals with chronic low-back pain participated in the psychometric evaluation of the Yoruba language translation. Cronbach's alpha (α), principal component analysis, intra-class correlation, Bland-Altman analysis, Spearman rank correlation coefficient, and minimal detectable differ...
