Abstract

It has been shown that the onset of the transversus abdominis muscle (TrA) muscle on a patient with low back pain (LBP) is delayed (Hodges and Richardson, 1996). To date there is no studies assessing the impact on the TrA recruitment after an abdominal surgery. The study is investigating a possible back pain after a hernia surgery, which can be necessary to any athlete. Surgery and back pain are issues that should be considered to any activity, specially sports. The aim of this study is to indirectly assess the recruitment of the TrA on a patient submitted to abdominal surgery.
