Study to determine whether a lumbar support improves trunk repositioning error (RE), an aspect of proprioception, in persons with chronic low back pain (LBP). Ability to move the trunk to a predetermined target position was measured in 20 participants with LBP and 20 controls without LBP before and after wearing the lumbar support for two hours. Results indicate that a lumbar support improves trunk RE. In persons with LBP, this effect was significant in the sagittal plane and in right lateral bending, while in persons without LBP this effect was significant only in left lateral bending.
