Abstract

The authors studied a group of subjects affected by functional low back pain and a group affected by chronic degenerative low back pain. Such patients were compared with normal healthy subjects. Evaluation using an isokinetic test showed a significant weakness of trunk extensor muscles of patients with functional low back pain disorder. The authors consider that such extensor weakness might play a role in determining lombalgic symptomatology.
