Contributions of Muscle Elasticity and Lateral Slide of the Transversus Abdominis to Lumbar Stability

Itsuroh Shimizu, Hiroichi Miaki, Katsunori Mizuno, Nobuhide Azuma, Takao Nakagawa, and Toshiaki Yamazaki

contribution of elasticity and lateral slide of the TrA to lumbar stability. A secondary objective of this study is to identify an effective exercise intervention to increase lumbar stabilization. The authors reported that the muscle elasticity of the TrA increased with the increase in the intensity of the

Comparison of the Therapeutic Effects of a Sling Exercise and a Traditional Stabilizing Exercise for Clinical Lumbar Spinal Instability

Yong Wook Kim, Na Young Kim, Won Hyuk Chang, and Sang Chul Lee

several studies. 7 , 8 Recently, a lumbar stability exercise using a sling has been applied to treat LBP. 5 The sling is a suspension device with a swaying rope that is used to reduce the individual’s weight load, similar to performing exercises in water. The unstable nature of a sling can be used to
