Limited Range of Motion Lumbar Extension Strength Training

    The study, “Limited Range of Motion Lumbar Extension Strength Training” is from the Official Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine. Range of motion in lumbar extension
    strength training are explored. Patients with lower back pain who have lower range of motion use isometric testing and exercises to try and strengthen their lower back.

    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 Torque Production

        This study is from a physical therapy research paper which examines the impact of isometric lumbar extension torque across 12- and 20-week periods. Participants were put into 5 training groups after completing the 12- or 20-week training. The participants were tested in a seated position at 7 different angles at a 72-degree range of motion (ROM).

        Comparison of Restraint Systems for Pelvic Stabilization

          In this study, the two different restraint systems to isolate the lumbar extensors were explored.
          The two different restraint systems are used through the pelvic
          stabilization by preventing movements in the lower part of your body while seated. Restraints are located on the knees and on the bottom of the feet. The goal of the study is to see how the restraint systems can influence lumbar extension strength and the shape of isometric lumbar extension strength curve.

          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.
