Trunk strengths were measured in 27 health males and 30 health females, and in 25 male and 15 female patients with low-back pain and/or sciatica. Maximum voluntary isometric strengths were measured during attempted flexion, extension, and lateral bending from an upright standing position. Both male and female patients had approximately 60% of the absolute trunk strengths of the corresponding healthy subjects. Intra-individual trunk strength ratios were used to interpret the results.
