The effect of foot support on trunk strength assessment using isokinetic dynamometry
(Ios Press, 2015-01-01)
BACKGROUND: The standardization of trunk-muscle strength assessment is important for clinical practice. OBJECTIVE: To compare trunk muscle strength and electromyographic (EMG) activation of the trunk and lower limb muscles ...
Are the anticipatory trunk movements occurring during load-carrying activities protective or risky?
(Elsevier B.V., 2008-03-01)
This study evaluated anteroposterior trunk movements and the time spent on activities of load-carrying to surfaces at different heights, among experienced and inexperienced individuals. Thirty-six healthy males (16 experienced ...
Electromyographic study of the trapezius (middle portion) and rhomboideus major muscles in movements of the trunk
The authors studied the trapezius (middle portion) and rhomboideus major muscles in movements of flexion, extension, inclination and rotation of the trunk. The electromyographic records demonstrate that such muscles show ...
Rate of force development and muscle activation of trunk muscles in women with and without low back pain: A case-control study
(Churchill Livingstone, 2017-07-01)
Objective: To evaluate the rate of force development (RFD) and the rate of electromyography rise (RER) of global and local trunk muscles in women with and without low back pain. Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: ...
Precisión de pruebas funcionales en la identificación de la pre-activación de los músculos lumbopélvicosAcurácia de testes funcionais na identificação da pré-ativação de músculos lombopélvicos
Introduction: Anticipatory adjustments (pre-activation) of the deep trunk muscles increase lumbopelvic stability. Previous studies have shown that asymptomatic individuals may experience delays in the start of muscle ...
