Relevance: LBP is common among tennis players. More than one third of professional tennis players reported LBP as reason for missing at least one tournament. As impaired lumbar motor functions have been associated with LBP, it appears particularly relevant to assess lumbopelvic movement control in tennis players. Methods: Twenty amateur tennis players (male, 22.9 ± 3.0 years) were included. Subjects were pooled into two groups: 10 players with chronic LBP (mean pain duration: 3.1 ± 2.6 years, pain severity score: 3.5/10 on a pain visual analogue scale) and 10 players without LBP. The Bent Knee Fall Out (BKFO) test was used to assess the players’ ability to control movement of lumbopelvic region. BKFO was performed in supine position and monitored by means of two pressure biofeedback units inflated to 40 mmHg and positioned under the lumbar spine of the participant. The reliability of this test has been previously assessed. Players were instructed to make an active abduction-external rotation movement of the hip (45°) without concomitant lumbopelvic movement of the pelvis and low back. Pressure modification (mmHg) was recorded, each side was assessed. Results: Tennis players with LBP had a worse lumbopelvic movement control than players without LBP both for dominant (9.0 mm Hg vs 3.4 mmHg, P<0.05) as well for the non-dominant side (9.1 mmHg vs 4.6 mmHg, P<0.05). Conclusions: Tennis players with LBP experience similar alterations of motor control as those observed in sedentary people with LBP. However, it remains unclear if these alterations are the cause of the consequence of chronic LBP. Implications: Further prospective studies should assess the cause or effect relationship and should determine whether motor control exercises are effective in tennis players with chronic LBP.

La MH reste une maladie rare et sa physiopathologie, toujours incertaine, rend le choix thérapeutique quelque peu hasardeux. Le port du collier cervical semble indiqué en phase évolutive dans les formes les plus typiques. Lorsque se surajoute une compression visible de la moelle cervicale en position neutre, une image cavitaire intra-médullaire ou une atteinte débordant les cornes antérieures, un geste chirurgical devra être discuté.

Objectifs. – Cette étude souhaite apprécier l’efficacité d’un programme pluridisciplinaire ambulatoire semi-intensif, élaboré en fonction des exigences des organismes mutualistes belges et destiné aux patients lombalgiques chroniques. Méthodes. – Parmi 262 patients souffrant de lombalgie chronique non spécifique inclus dans cette étude, 136 (73 femmes et 63hommes présentant des douleurs depuis 11,3 ans en moyenne) ont achevé un programme ambulatoire (36 séances de deux heures) comportant une éducation à l’économie rachidienne, une approche ergonomique et psychologique ainsi que des séances de reconditionnement physique. Trois séances (initiale [séance 1], intermédiaire (séance 18) et finale [séance 36]) évaluent les paramètres d’intensité de la douleur, d’incapacité fonctionnelle, de kinésiophobie, de connaissances cognitives et gestuelles ainsi que les performances physiques (force et endurance des muscles du tronc, mobilité du complexe lombo-pelvi-fémoral, endurance cardiorespiratoire). Résultats. – Tous les paramètres sont significativement améliorés lors de l’évaluation finale : diminution de l’intensité de la douleur (−44 %), des répercussions fonctionnelles (−40 %) et de la kinésiophobie (−11 %), amélioration des connaissances (+59 %) et de la gestuelle vertébrale (+95 %), augmentation de la force des muscles du tronc (+40 % en moyenne), de l’endurance des extenseurs du tronc (+90 %), de la mobilité (+8 %) et de l’endurance cardiorespiratoire (+18 %). Conclusions. – Une prise en charge pluridisciplinaire ambulatoire semi-intensive s’avère bénéfique pour les patients lombalgiques chroniques. Une adaptation des critères d’inclusion et une implication accrue du patient dans sa rééducation contribueraient à améliorer l’observance du programme. [less ▲]

Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of a semi-intensive multidisciplinary outpatient program complying with the requirements of the Belgian National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance and intended for patients with chronic low back pain. Methods: Weincluded 262 patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain, amongwhom136 (73women and 63 men) with a mean pain duration of 11.3 years completed the outpatient program (36 sessions each lasting 2 h). The program consisted of education about back-sparing techniques, interventions by an occupational therapist and psychologist, and physical reconditioning. Three sessions (sessions 1, 18, and 36) were used to evaluate pain intensity, functional impairment, kinesiophobia, cognitive knowledge, knowledge of appropriate spinal movement technique, and physical performance (trunk muscle strength and endurance, mobility of the pelvis and lumbar spine, and aerobic capacity). Results: All study variables were significantly improved at study completion compared to baseline: pain intensity was decreased by 44%, functional impairment by 40%, and kinesiophobia by 11% whereas knowledge was improved by 59%, back-sparing technique by 95%, trunk muscle strength by 40% on average, trunk extensor muscle endurance by 90%, mobility by 8%, and aerobic capacity by 18%. Conclusions: A semi-intensive multidisciplinary outpatient program was beneficial in patients with chronic low back pain. Careful patient selection and increased patient involvement in the program may help to improve adherence. [less ▲]

Les patients lombalgiques présentant une instabilité lombaire semblent constituer un sous-groupe particulier. De nombreuses définitions de l’instabilité lombaire ont été proposées. L’instabilité radiologique se distingue de l’instabilité fonctionnelle. Leur diagnostic demeure délicat : l’intérêt des clichés radiographiques statique et dynamique semble limité tandis que plusieurs signes et tests cliniques de l’instabilité ont été décrits dans la littérature mais demeurent controversés. Trois éléments composent le système de stabilisation fonctionnelle de la colonne : les sous-systèmes passif, actif et neuromusculaire qui sont interdépendants. L’intérêt de programmes de stabilisation lombaire pour les patients lombalgiques a été démontré. Les exercices de stabilisation lombaire visent une reprogrammation sensorimotrice des muscles stabilisateurs de la colonne afin d’améliorer leur potentiel, leur temps de réponse et ainsi compenser des déficits du système passif de stabilisation. Cet article souhaite définir le concept d’instabilité, préciser les moyens de son évaluation, appréhender les anomalies du système de stabilisation présentes chez les sujets lombalgiques, décrire les principaux exercices recommandés dans la littérature et enfin rapporter les bénéfices observés à la suite de programmes de stabilisation lombaire.

The goals of this paper were to define the concept of instability, to describe the way it can be assessed, to report on impairments of the spine stabilization system in patients with low back pain (LBP), to cite the recommended exercises and, lastly, to examine the results of programs based on lumbar stabilization. Patients suffering from lumbar instability appear to belong to a particular subgroup of subjects with LBP. In the literature, several definitions of lumbar instability have been proposed. Radiological instability, for instance, differs from functional instability. Diagnosis remains difficult: the relevance of static and dynamic radiographs appears limited whereas several signs and clinical instability tests have been described in the literature but remain controversial. The functional stability system of the spine consists of three interdependent components: the passive, the active and the neuromuscular subsystems. The benefits of lumbar stabilization programs for LBP patients have been underlined. Lumbar stabilization exercises are aimed at sensorimotor reprogrammation of spine stabilizer muscles intended to improve their motor control skill and delay of response and consequently to compensate for weakness of the passive stabilization system.
