  Purpose
Proprioceptive training has been shown to be effective in increasing the efficiency of motor-sensory tissues that stabilize the trunk. The investigators hypothesis is that proprioceptive support do influence in the activation of the transversus abdominis muscle (TrA) during segmental stabilization training.

Condition Intervention Phase
Transversus Abdominis Activation Other: Segmental trunk exercise associated with proprioception Other: Segmental trunk exercise Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Influence of Thoracolumbar Proprioceptive Support in the Segmental Stabilization Training

Further study details as provided by Fuad Ahmad Hazime, Universidade Federal do Piauí:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Activation of transversus abdominis [ Time Frame: Two Weeks ]
    Activation of transverus abdominis will be assessed by the biofeedback pressure unit.Pressure biofeedback units consist of a combined inflation bulb connected to a pressure cell.
