Abstract Share this page

Spinal physical capacity and in particular static back endurance were studied for their prediction of first-time experience of low-back pain. Of a total of 126 persons who were free from back complaints at entry, 33 developed low-back pain during a follow-up of 1 year. The static back endurance test was found to be the only physical capacity measurement that indicated an increased risk of low-back pain. Adjusted for age, sex, and occupation, the odds ratio of a new low-back pain in those with poor performance was 3.4 (95% confidence interval, 1.2-10.0) compared to those with medium or good performance. RELEVANCE--:The simple static back endurance test might have value in health examinations because of its strong predictive value of future low-back pain.
