Simulated transversus abdominis muscle force does not increase stiffness of the pubic symphysis and innominate bone: an in vitro study.


BACKGROUND The transversus abdominis muscle is thought to exert a stiffening effect on the sacroiliac joints. However, it is unknown whether this muscle is capable of increasing pubic symphysis and innominate bone stiffness during load exerted on the pelvis. The objective of this study is to investigate whether in vitro simulated force of transversely… (More)
