• Low back pain is the most common health problem of the locomotors apparatus, which affects between 70 and 85% of the population once in a lifetime. 

  • High prevalence is present in both, highly active and sedentary people.

  • Mechanisms behind the low back pain can be multi-factorial with improper biomechanics as one of the most common.

  • The onset of pain occurs when anatomical structures of the lumbar-sacral region experience too much load.

  • TNC method is a diagnostic approach to objectively evaluate some of the most common factors associated with low back pain.


Comprehensive approach



Research has showed that several changes occur in the neuromuscular control of the trunk in people with low back pain. These changes can be reflected in delayed latencies of trunk muscles’ activation, higher degree of activation, loss of independent control, weak trunk extension muscles, etc. As part of our diagnostics we provide valid, objective and accurate measurements of trunk neuromuscular control (TNC method), which also provides solid ground for further work in terms of exercise and rehabilitation.




Tailored exercise has been shown as an important part of reducing low back pain and preventing new episodes of its occurrence. The aim of our exercise program is to address the mechanisms and rekindle a healthy neuromuscular control of the trunk. The exercise specifically targets specific muscles to create a symmetric and strong stabilisation of the lumbar-pelvic region and consequently reduce the load on passive structures that cause low back pain.




To prevent the onset of low back pain at a specific workplace we offer consultations and program design for healthy and safe work environment. We provide instructions on how to lift heavy weight, how to push or pull heavy loads or how to sit properly to reduce the load on the lower back. Enterprises with a high prevalence of sick leave due to low back pain can benefit by using our guidelines and instructions to reduce the load on their workers’ lower back.




There is a high chance that each and every one of us will experience an episode of low back pain once in our lifetime and is therefore better to prevent it. We provide program design by implementing a kinesiology-ergonomics approach which is a combination of 1) tailored exercise with adequate recovery and 2) designing a healthy work environment. Other preventive measures are also advised and are normally reflected in a healthy lifestyle (physical activity, appropriate body mass, absence from smoking, etc.)
