The effect of posture on neck proprioception and head/neck stabilization in asymptomatic participants

September 06, 2019

Objective: We sought to determine the effect of different body postures on neck proprioception and head/neck stabilization. Methods: Twelve healthy college students completed a head repositioning task and a ‘head still’ task while wearing a headpiece (helmet) with laser fixed on top during standing, kneeling, sitting, and sitting with stabilization. Video data of the laser

The use of “stabilization exercises” to affect neuromuscular control in the lumbopelvic region: a narrative review

May 21, 2014

It is well-established that the coordination of muscular activity in the lumbopelvic region is vital to the generation of mechanical spinal stability. Several models illustrating mechanisms by which dysfunctional neuromuscular control strategies may serve as a cause and/or effect of low back pain have been described in the literature. The term “core stability” is variously
