Abstract [en]

Introduction

Prevalence of injuries in Swedish competing powerlifters have been found to be high, with low back pain being one of the most common sites of injury. An altered movement control in individuals with LBP in a general population has been shown. Lumbopelvic movement control as a risk factor in powerlifters is not known. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to measure lumbopelvic movement control in powerlifters with and without LBP.

Method

Thirty-two participants were included, 10 with low back pain (age: 28,4±4,8; 7 men and 3 women) and 22 healthy controls (age: 24,7±3,7; 12 men and 10 women). They performed a lumbopelvic movement control test battery consisting of seven tests, with a possible score between 0-13. The tests were filmed and rated by an experienced physical therapist.

Results

There was no statistically significant difference between the LBP group (Median = 6,50, CI: 2 – 9) and the control group (Median = 6,00, 95% CI: 6 – 8) (P =1,000). The effect size (Hedges g) was 0,00 (95% CI: -0,75 – 0,75). There was no statistically significant difference between the LBP group and the control group on any individual test. Nor was there any difference in total test battery score between participants with acute LBP (Median = 7), sub-acute LBP (Median = 10) and chronic participants (Median = 6) (p=0,368).

Conclusion

There was no difference in performance on a lumbopelvic movement test battery between powerlifters with low back pain and powerlifters without low back pain. Possibly indicating that lumbopelvic movement control is not associated with low back pain in powerlifters.
