Abstract

This study investigates the effects of body weight supported and conventional treadmill walking on gait and trunk motion of asymptomatic people and low back pain (LBP) patients. Forty participants, 19 LBP patients and 21 asymptomatic individuals were recruited. Significant differences were found in gait and trunk kinematic parameters between the two walking conditions, in both participant groups.
