Isokinetic assessment in schoolchildren with low back pain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In recent years there has been growing concern regarding back pain in schoolchildren. Our research team studied the risk factors in this particular age group including a careful evaluation, still in progress, of trunk performance. The aim of this paper is to present a review of literature and the pertinent questions relating to this field. The issues that will be discussed are: 1. Prevalence and risk factors of low back pain in teenagers: are they related to trunk muscles? 2. Low back pain and school backpacks: some unexpected results relating to a particular trunk muscle performance risk factor 3. Normative isokinetic trunk performance parameters in schoolchildren 4. Correlation of sporting activities with back pain and isokinetic trunk strength 5. Preliminary results associating isokinetic trunk strength and back pain 6. Pertinent new questions.
