And Now for some news ….
Targeted Approach to Evaluating the Golfing Athlete with LBP
Low back pain is one of the most common conditions occurring in the golfing population. Many approaches have been utilized throughout the years to address this condition including the concept of regional interdependence.
The purpose of this case report, published in the North American Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, was to describe the evaluation process and treatment approach of a golfer with low back pain using the principles of regional interdependence.
The patient in this case study had mobility restrictions in his thoracic spine and hips that appeared to be contributing to a hypermobility in the lower lumbar spine.
Based on the evaluation, he was placed into the treatment-based classification (TBC) of stabilization but would also benefit from mobilization/manipulation techniques.
This case report describes the evaluation process and treatment approach to specifically target the demands that are required during the golf swing.
Utilizing a targeted approach that includes golf specific movement screening and a swing evaluation can help guide the therapist in their treatment and improve the patient’s outcome.

Reliability and Validity of the Y-balance Test in Chronic LBP
Individuals with chronic low back pain (CLBP) may demonstrate reduced ability to perform dynamic tasks due to fear of additional pain and injury in response to the movement.
The Y-balance test (YBT) is a functional and inexpensive test used with various populations. However, the reliability and validity of the Y-balance test used for assessing dynamic balance in young adults with chronic low back pain have not yet been examined.
A recent study was published in the North American Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, to determine the inter-rater reliability of the Y-balance test and to compare dynamic balance between young adults with chronic low back pain and an asymptomatic group.
Conclusions from the study found that the results demonstrated excellent inter-rater reliability and validity of the Y-balance test for assessing dynamic balance in the chronic low back pain population.
The Y-balance test may be a useful tool for clinicians to assess dynamic balance deficits in patients with chronic low back pain.
