Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Low Back Pain is a common muscular disorder that most adults would experience over their lives. In healthy patients at the end of a lumbar flexion occur a phenomenon called the Flexion Relaxation Phenomenon. Ratios between different phases of lumbar flexion can help diagnosing LBP patients. The aim of this work is to create an automated algorithm to compute this ratios helping to discriminate between healthy and LBP athletes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 21 participants were recruited: 10 LBP and 11 healthy. Participants were tested with Lumbar Flexion Test for evaluating LBP. sEMG were recorded in low back muscles. RESULTS: Athletes diagnosed with LBP showed ratios lower than 1.5. For healthy participants we observed results greater than 1.5. DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Our results are contained between rates found in literature. Our algorithm can help the diagnose of athletes with a non-intrusive method and with little knowledge of sEMG analysis.
