Low back skin sensitivity has minimal impact on active lumbar spine proprioception and stability in healthy adults


The purpose of the current work was to (1) determine whether low back cutaneous sensitivity could be reduced through the use of a topical lidocaine–prilocaine anesthetic (EMLA®) to mirror reductions reported in chronic lower back pain (CLBP) patients, as well as to (2) identify whether reductions in cutaneous sensitivity resulted in decreased lumbar spine… (More)
