Study Design. Observational prospective study.Objective. Our objective was to assess the reliability and validity of the French version of the Keele STarT Back Screening Tool (SBST).Summary of Background Data. The SBST is a recently validated tool developed to identify subgroups of patients with low back pain (LBP) to guide early secondary prevention in primary care.Methods. Outpatients with LBP aged 18 years or more, attending a rehabilitation centre, a back school, a private physiotherapy unit or a fitness centre were included. Patients were assessed through the SBST, Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ), Orebro Musculoskeletal Pain Screening Questionnaire (OMPSQ), Medical Outcomes Survey Short Form 36 (SF-36) questionnaire, and a pain visual analogic scale (VAS). Test-retest reliability was assessed with Kappa score or the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), internal consistency of the psychological subscale with the Cronbach alpha coefficient, construct validity with the Spearman's correlation coefficient, and floor and ceiling effects by percentage frequency of lowest or highest possible score achieved by respondents.Results. 108 patients with LBP were included. The test-retest reliability of the SBST total score was excellent with an ICC of 0.90 (0.81-0.95). The Cronbach alpha coefficient was 0.73 showing a good internal consistency for the psychological subscale. High Spearman's correlation coefficients of 0.74 between SBST and RMDQ, and 0.74 between the SBST and OMPSQ were observed. As expected, low to moderate correlations were observed between the SBST total score and some dissimilar measures of the SF-36. The lowest possible SBST score was observed for 8 patients (7.4%) whereas only three patients (2.8%) had the highest possible SBST score.Conclusion. The French version of the SBST is a reliable and valid questionnaire consistent with the original English version. Therefore, this new version may help French-speaking clinicians and scientists to stratify patients with LBP. [less ▲]

Introduction. Low back pain (LBP) is common among athletes and can be challenging for athletic trainers and therapists. Unfortunately, little is known about symptoms associated with functional lumbar segmental instability (FLSI) in athletes with LBP. Purpose. To determine subjective and objective symptoms associated with FLSI in athletes with LBP. Materials and Methods. We included 24 male athletes (12 soccer players and 12 tennis players) with non specific LBP mean (± standard deviation) pain intensity (0-100 Visual Analogue Scale) and disability (0-24 Roland-Disability questionnaire) scores reaching respectively 35 (±20) and 4 (±3). Athletes were submitted to a standardized anamnesis (including subjective identifiers of FLSI) and a clinical assessment conducted by a manual therapist who explored objective identifiers of FLSI. Results. According to the manual therapist, 12 athletes (6 tennis and 6 soccer players) presented a FLSI. The two groups did not differ regarding pain intensity and disability (P>0.05). However, athletes with FLSI appeared significantly younger than non FLSI athletes (P<0.01). Only three subjective identifiers appeared significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players with LBP: “reports frequent episodes of muscle spasms”, “reports feelings of giving way or back giving out” and “Pain increased with sudden, trivial, or mild movements”. Regarding objective identifiers of FLSI, “positive prone instability test”, “aberrant movement during active and passive trunk flexion-extension“ and “poor lumbopelvic control” were significantly related to FLSI in these athletes. Conclusions. In this preliminary study, 50% of the athletes with LBP presented a FLSI. Some subjective and objective symptoms are significantly related to FLSI in soccer and tennis players. Implications. Athletes with LSI should be targeted for retraining to restore normal movement control. [less ▲]

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.

This study showed some difference in trunk and knee extensors strength between rowers and control subjects as well as between rowers and non-rowing athletes. The increased performances of extensor muscles in elite rowers appear to be probably related to the specificity of this sport. In the drive phase of rowing, rowers sequentially push with the legs and then pull with the arms and lower back, requiring both muscular strength and endurance. However, no difference was shown between groups regarding dynamic and static trunk extensor endurance. Further study is required to clarify if trunk and knee muscle strength and/or endurance are related to rowing performance. [less ▲]

Background: Low back pain (LBP) is a major public health problem and the identification of individuals at risk of persistent LBP poses substantial challenges to clinical management. The STarT Back questionnaire is a validated nine-item patient self-report questionnaire that classifies patients with LBP at low, medium or high-risk of poor prognosis for persistent non-specific LBP. The objective of this study was to translate and cross-culturally adapt the English version of the STarT Back questionnaire into French. Methods: The translation was performed using best practice translation guidelines. The following phases were performed: contact with the STarT Back questionnaire developers, initial translations (English into French), synthesis, back translations, expert committee review, test of the pre-final version on 44 individuals with LBP, final version. Results: The linguistic translation required minor semantic alterations. The participants interviewed indicated that all items of the questionnaire were globally clear and comprehensible. However, 6 subjects (14%) wondered if two questions were related to back pain or general health. After discussion within the expert committee and with the developer of the STarT Back tool, it was decided to modify the questionnaire and to add a reference to back pain in these two questions. Conclusions: The French version of the STarT Back questionnaire has been shown to be comprehensible and adapted to the French speaking general population. Investigations are now required to test the psychometric properties (reliability, internal and external validity, responsiveness) of this translated version of the questionnaire. [less ▲]
