motor control exercises effective?
control exercise is a form of exercise for back pain that has gained
the attention of researchers and health practitioners over the past
focuses on regaining control of the trunk muscles which support and
control the spine. Previous studies of patients with low back pain
have shown they are unable to properly control these muscles.
motor control exercise, patients are taught how to isolate and "switch
on" these muscles and then incorporate these movements into their
is evidence that in some people with persistent back trouble, specific
muscles that help control the spine are not working properly, and
motor control exercise may address that underlying issue.
now, there had been only limited evidence that the therapy was effective.
that focuses on the specific muscles seems to be the key, rather than
general exercise such as walking.
control exercise and spinal manipulative therapy produce slightly
better short-term function and perceptions of effect than general
exercise, but not better medium or long-term effects, in patients
with chronic non-specific back pain.
exercise included strengthening, stretching and aerobic exercises.
control exercise develops specific muscles.
muscles include the lumbar multifidus and the transversus abdominus.
multifidi are the deepest layer of muscles of the back. They attach
from the vertebral arches to the spinous processes. Each multifidi
connects 1-3 vertebrae, (the vertebrae are the bones of the spine)
controlling movement between the vertebrae.
abdominus is the most important abdominal muscle for lower back stability
and the prevention of lower back pain.

multifidi and the transversus abdominus.
