A research group in the Netherlands, consisting of the Amphia Hospital’s Orthopedics Department, Doornbos Fysio Group and Avans Hogeschool are conducting research into the use of TMG100 tensiomyography in the treatment of low back pain.
In the current study they will identify differences in TMG100 results in muscles commonly involved in low back pain, between healthy subjects and patients suffering from non-specific low back pain. The aim of the research is to contribute to the body of evidence and knowledge in low back pain rehabilitation and exercise programs. The first pilot measurements were conducted in March and we are looking forward to reporting on the study progress in future newsletters.
