Samenvatting

Background: The professional assignment ‘ Lumbar Lordosis and low back pain in show jumping riders’ focuses in hamstring shortening and its effects in muscle imbalance and changes in pelvic tilt; its consequences as vertebral disc compression causes possible increased risk of disc herniation . Objectives: Our goal of the professional assignment is to determine the main factors of muscular dysbalance and their effects contributing to lumbar lordosis as ell as the influences in low back in professional show jumping riders. Methods: A Pilot study, Low Back Pain questionnaire designed for Professional Show jumping riders and literature research were used to conclude our findings. A Randomized controlled clinical trial investigated the effect of a daily home training program for hamstring stretching in professional show jumping riders with unspecific low back pain. Seven male and three female participants were included. Aberdeen Low Back Pain Questionnaire was used to asses the level of back pain.SPSS was used for statistical analysis. Low Back Pain Questionnaire(Auvala M, Klein S) was distributed to 40 SJ riders to asses the percentage of riders affected with unspecific low back pain and if they are receiving physiotherapy treatment or manual therapy. Literature research was used to compare our findings whereby 21articles were reviewed out of which 6 were rejected due to low quality. Criteria list was used to asses the scientific level and external validity of the articles. Results: Out of 40 riders questioned 35 presented with Low Back Pain. During the pilot study hamstring stretch had a positive effect in reduction of Low back pain. Conclusion: The incidence of Low Back Pain amongst professional show jumping riders is high. It may be caused by muscular dysbalance and further randomized controlled trials are recommended.
