Several studies show that 50-80% of adults in the general population will suffer from low back pain at some stage in their lives.
A possible contributor to the persistence or recurrence of this condition is changes in postural control of the trunk muscles. Several studies have demonstrated delayed activation of the deep abdominal and back muscles and increased activity of superficial trunk muscles in patients with recurrent low back pain. Also, ilio-sacral shear and diaphragm-transversus abdominis -pelvic floor muscles ” in serie” seem to play a crucial role.
It is also important, in case of back pain, sacralgia, groin or hip pain, to check and treat any unilateral or bilateral hypertension- hypertrophy of the iliopsoas muscle.
Many of these changes persist after the resolution of symptoms and have been argued to contribute to the recurrence of pain episodes.
After many years research and analysis of several scientific studies, ProActionClinic has developed Extensit back pad and has got an international Pattern for this.
Extensit pad: a new strategy for postural deficits related to low back pain, hip, groin, knee pain.
