Back and leg complaints in relation to muscle strength in young men

, : Back and leg complaints in relation to muscle strength in young men. Scandinavian Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine 12(2): 53-60

Back and leg complaints were studied by using a questionnaire and medical examination in 183 male conscripts and relating the results to background variables, anthropometry, the isometric strength of large muscle groups and endurance running. A history of sciatica was reported by 8%, lumbago by 13%, back injury by 13% and low back insufficiency by 63%. Weak trunk extensors were associated with a history of sciatica, weak trunk flexors with back injuries and with current backache at work/exercise. Weak leg extensors showed associations with a history of low back insufficiency and of sick leave due to the back and with current hip pain. Men with a history of lumbago and of hip and knee complaints performed poorly during 12 min of running. Back and leg complaints were more frequent in men with high socio-economic status, who engaged in little physical activity, or who were obese. The questionnaire and strength measurements proved suitable for studying low back syndrome in its early stages.

It is controversial whether water crosses the paracellular pathway in leaky epithelia (i.e. gall bladder). Therefore, this paper explores whether variations in the absorptive volume flux (Jv) are correlated with different degrees of penetration of...
