Pain changes the brain

17th January 2013

Article of the week:

We continue with our plan to post interesting abstracts

Smudging the motor brain in young adults with recurrent low back pain.

ISSLS prize winner

Tsao H, Danneels LA, Hodges PW.

Spine 2011 Oct 1;36(21):1721-7. doi: 10.1097/BRS.0b013e31821c4267.

This research paper demonstrates that low back pain is associated with a loss of discrete cortical organization of the back muscles. Increased overlap in the motor cortical representation of Deep Multifidus and Longissimus Erector Spinae may explain motor control changes noted in people with low back pain. Helps to explain why it is difficult to retrain the motor control impairment in people with low back pain.

Motor Control Impairments in Dancers - the need for movement assessment

13th January 2013

Motor control impairments are identified in dancers with a history of low back pain. Dancers who fail tests of motor control are associated with an increased risk of developing lower extremities or lumbar spine injuries in dancers (see abstracts).  Movement control assessment and retraining is not only necessary to manage symptoms but also to decrease the risk of onset of symptoms. We are working on a Movement and Performance Screen specifically for dancers - The Dance Matrix - available later this year see performancematrix.com
