Abstract
[Purpose] This study assessed the effects of a pelvic belt (PB) on the electromyography (EMG) activity of the elector spinae (ES), gluteus maximus (GM), and biceps femoris (BF) in females with chronic low back pain (CLBP) during prone hip extension (PHE). [Subjects] Twenty female with CLBP were recruited. Surface EMG data were collected from the ES, GM, and BF muscles during a PHE task. [Results] The EMG activity in the ES bilaterally, and the right GM decreased significantly when a PB was applied compared with when a PB was not applied. [Conclusion] This suggests that a PB is effective for altering the activation pattern of the hip extensor muscles in females with CLBP during PHE.
