ABSTRACT

Purpose:The present study invesigated the effect of changes in transversus abdominis thickness using ultrasonography during a hip adductor contraction. Methods:This study was carred out in a volunteer sample of adults (N=30) without a history of low back pain or injury. In standing position, muscle thickness measurements of transversus abdominis(TrA) were measured using ultrasonography at rest and during a hip adducor contraction. Results:TrA thickness were influenced a hip adductor during a voluntary contraction in people without LBP. TrA showed significantly greater thickness changes on a hip adductor contraction.(p=0.000)Conclusion:The results from this study showed that the hip adductor contraction improves the ability to increase change in TrA thickness. These results can be a good evidence to prevent low back pain due to hip adductor weakness or genu varum deformity of knee osteoarthritis.
