Access from EThOS:
Mechanical low back pain is a common and costly medical problem. Most treatment options for low back pain have been reported to provide only short-term improvements in symptoms. Increasing the endurance of the local abdominal muscles, particularly transversus abdominis, by means of the so-called hollowing manoeuvre is a recommended method for long-term improvement in spinal stability and ultimately for prevention and alleviation of low back pain.
