STUDY DESIGN Two abdominal muscle patterns were tested in the same group of individuals, and their effects were compared in relation to sacroiliac joint laxity. One pattern was contraction of the transversus abdominis, independently of the other abdominals; the other was a bracing action that used all the lateral abdominal muscles. OBJECTIVES To demonstrate the biomechanical effect of the exercise for the transversus abdominis known to be effective in low back pain. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND… CONTINUE READING
