Back pain - does relief come from sport medicine?

Prof. Frank Mayer from the University of Potsdam talks about nonspecific back pain and deficits of the neuromuscular system in the trunk that are a possible cause. A German network researches tools to diagnose, prevent and treat these deficits and the resulting back pain. Jürgen Fischer and Dr. Peter Stehle from the German Federal Institute of Sports Science (German: Bundesinstitut für Sportwissenschaft) explain the backgrounds of the project "Back Pain". Its results are intended to be of use not only in professional sports but also for the general public.
