    The Lower backpain App is an app te reduce and resolve nonspecific lower back pain. 90-95% of the people with backpain suffer of nonspecific lower back pain. Often te backpain is combined with lack of mobility of the lowerback caused by muscle spasm of the erector trunci or quadratus lumborum. O'Sullivan (2005) said: Finally it is proposed that there is a large group of CLBP disorders where patients present with either movement impairments (characterized by pain avoidance behaviour) or control impairments (characterized by pain provocation behaviour). These pain disorders are predominantly mechanically induced and patients typically present with mal-adaptive primary physical and secondary cognitive compensations for their disorders that become a mechanism for ongoing pain. These subjects present either with an excess or deficit in spinal stability, which underlies their pain disorder. O' Sullivan also said:"For this group, physiotherapy interventions that are specifically directed and classification based, have the potential to impact on both the physical and cognitive drivers of pain leading to resolution of the disorder."

    We made an App exercise program to improve the lokal stability of the lowerback. The exercise program is build up in 3 stages: increase of mobility (created normal AROM) , increase of lokal control (There has been an increased focus on the management of CLBP from a motor control perspective (Richardson and Jull, 1995; O’Sullivan, 1997, 2000; Sahrmann, 2001))and increase of lokal stability in a 10 week exercise program.

    The App can be downloaded from: Appstore: Google playstore:
