Background: Low back pain causes movement and occupational restrictions in women. The aim of this study was to compare women with and without low back pain and its relationship with body type, muscle percentage and fat.
Methods: The statistical population consisted of women with low back pain (28 people, 30 to 60 years old) were randomly selected and 28 people were selected as healthy or controls. In this study, tape meter, caliper, colis, Heath Carter test, physical fitness software, body composition measuring device, camera and corrective movements software were used.
Results: Among the variables of body mass index, in all skinfolds (triceps, supralliac, subscapular and calf), arm condyle diameter, lumbar angle, percentage of fat and muscle, fat and muscle weight, as well as in ectomorphic somatotypes and there is a significant difference in endomorphs. The predominant type of women with low back pain is ectomorphic-endomorph type. There was no significant relationship between endomorphic and mesomorphic body type with muscle and fat percentage (except for fat percentage in the low back pain group).
Conclusion: In women with low back pain and obesity, being overweight leads to changes in body type and abnormalities in the trunk and spine. Therefore, experts in the field of physical education and corrective movements are recommended to provide exercises to correct lordosis and kyphosis. On the other hand, by identifying these people, it is possible to prevent abnormalities, injuries, and excessive medical expenses.
