BACKGROUND Viscoelastic creep of lumbar ligaments (prolonged forward bend) has been shown to negatively influence the spine's muscular reflexive behaviour and spinal stability. No studies to date have investigated the influence of spinal viscoelastic creep on the feedforward response of the trunk muscles to sudden arm raises. METHODS Surface myoelectric activity was collected from the transversus abdominis/internal oblique, the lower erector spinae and the deltoid muscle during sudden… CONTINUE READING
