Combination of Trunk muscle training and neuromuscular electrical stimulation may improve function in chronic low back pain
A recent preliminary clinical trial evaluated a trunk muscle training program combined with neuromuscular electrical stimulation (TMT+NMES) for rehabilitation of older adults with chronic low back pain (CLBP). The study found that participants in the TMT+NMES groups had greater improvements in function (performance-based and self-reported) than the passive control group.
New Resource on Controlled Breathing and Guided Imagery
We just added a new resource on controlled breathing and guided imagery for patients and caregivers. Controlled breathing and guided imagery are non-drug strategies used to help reduce stress that can cause muscle tension and increase pain. Our resource offers advice on carrying out these strategies.
