The purpose

The prevalence of low back pain among persons with unilateral lower limb amputation is significantly higher than the rate experienced by the general public. Chronic pain, including low back pain, limits functional independence and negatively impacts quality of life. As such, this project will investigate the role of a biomechanical casual pathway in the development of low back pain; to do this, the investigators will explore the relationship between the adopted neuromuscular patterns post-amputation to perform activities of daily living and the risk of developing spinal tissue damage.
