Project description

Different studies have demonstrated changes in motor control in patients with back pain. These changes can be observed at the muscular level. The aim of this project is to study by means of MRI the muscle/fat composition of the trunk muscles, to compare healthy subjects with LBP patients and to evaluate the effect of training on the muscle composition.
