Electromyographic Activity of Posterior Oblique Sling Muscles During Gait in Subjects with Chronic Non-Specific Low Back Pain versus Healthy Controls

SUMMARY Objective. To measure the surface electromyographic (EMG) activity of gluteus maxi¬≠mus (GMax) and latissimus dorsi (LD) muscles during walking and to measure the scapular upward rotation at different ranges of shoulder abduction in subjects with chronic nonspecific low back pain (CNSLBP) versus healthy controls. Methods. Twenty-six subjects with unilateral CNSLBP with a mean age … Continued
