Low Back Pain

Restorative Exercise for Clinical Low Back Pain

    This research study aimed to prove how strengthening the lumbar extensor muscles in the spine using specific equipment increased progress. This study compared the progress of two different medical centers that are both using the same treatment protocols and research tactics. The research was recorded and presented in the study.

    Pelvic Stabilization During Resistance Training

      The goal of this research study was to determine how exercise training affects the development of lumbar extension strength. This study was also dependent on the presence or absence of pelvic stabilization. The study included different subject groups with different measurements being observed. The data was recorded and proposed in this study.

      Muscle Physiology & Resistance Training

        This chapter provides an overview of the physiological principles related to assessing muscular strength and the methods for developing and
        sustaining muscular strength through exercise. It specifically focuses on the evaluation and training of the isolated lumbar extensor muscles,
        synthesizing research findings. Normative data for both genders and the interpretation of strength curves are included. Important considerations for evaluating and conditioning the lumbar extensor muscles, such as static and dynamic testing techniques, muscle fatigue characteristics, counterweighting effects, total torque, net muscular torque, strength curves, and the trainability of these muscles, are discussed.

        Low back strengthening for the prevention & treatment of low back pain

          In this research study, strengthening of the low back is demonstrated to treat and prevent low back pain. Rehabilitation through lumbar extension strengthening is believed to improve strength, endurance, and mobility. Improvements in low back pain show potential for the reduction of pain for patients.

          Effect of resistance training on lumbar extension strength

            This research study aimed to demonstrate how strength exercise testing on the pelvic region can evaluate lumbar extension and range of motion. By performing different exercises and a maximum isometric strength test, subjects were ultimately able to increase their pelvic stabilization and gain strength. Data was observed and recorded.

            Effect of Focused Strength Training After Low Back Injury

              This research project which involved patients in the Orthomed program at the University of California San Diego studied the efficacy of a conditioning program using the MedX Lumbar Extension Machine. The study tracked back strength, lift capacity, self-perception, pain rating, and activity level.

              Comparison of Female Geriatric Lumbar Extension Strength

                In the conducted research, lumbar strength was compared between healthy asymptomatic geriatric women and symptomatic geriatric females. The INJ group assessed the back strength of the two control groups using MedX lumbar extension machines. The findings revealed a notable increase in range of motion (ROM) and back strength following the use of these machines.
