STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study. OBJECTIVE To investigate the function of the transversus abdominis (TrA) and internal oblique (10) muscles bilaterally during a simulated weight-bearing task using ultrasound imaging. BACKGROUND An important aspect of neuromuscular control at the lumbopelvic region is stabilization. Biomechanical models have predicted that activation of transversely oriented muscles, such as the TrA and 10 muscles, can stiffen the sacroiliac joints and actively stabilize… CONTINUE READING
