Patients with CLBP will be more exposed to negative physical, social, psychological, and economic experiences if they

, ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, and skin to the central nervous system. In the WB AMEDA standing position, the discharge rate of mechanoreceptors (such as muscle spindle) probably increases with increased muscle tension. 29 Muscles with increased tension (eg, in a standing position) might discharge

cognitive factors, physiological reactions (e.g., muscle tension), and attentional factors (e.g., increased distractability). The interaction of these variables can increase an athlete’s susceptibility to injury by influencing coordination and flexibility along with interfering with the detection of

increase in athletes’ susceptibility to injury is thought to occur due to changes in physiological (e.g., increased muscle tension, fatigue, impaired timing, and motor coordination) and attentional (e.g., narrowing of visual field, distractibility, loss of task-relevant cues) processes ( Brewer & Redmond

Sport Biofeedback provides feedback on physiological responses related to the sympathetic nervous system’s stress response. Essentially, when the sympathetic nervous system is activated, the body responds physiologically by (a) increasing respiration rate, heart rate, electrodermal activity, and muscle
