Howev85er, in patients with low back pain, the TrA is delayed, suggesting a sensorimotor dysfunction (Hodges and Richardson 1996,1998). Janda was one of the first to note weakness of the TrA in patients with chronic low back pain (Janda 1987). Similarly, the TrA is delayed in subjects with groin pain (Cowan et al.

Hip weakness is also associated with functional ankle instability (Friel et al. 2006). Global postural stability deficits have been associated with ankle instability (Bullock-Saxton 1995; Cornwall and Murrell 1991; Goldie, Evans, and Bach 1994; Lentell, Katzman, and Walters 1990; Perrin et al. 1997; Ryan 1994; Tropp and Odenrick 1988; Wikstrom et al. 2007), knee instability (Zatterstrom et al. 1994), knee osteoarthritis (Hassan, Mockett, and Doherty 2001; Wegener, Kisner, and Nichols 1997), chronic neck pain (Karlberg, Persson, and Magnusson 1995; McPartland, Brodeur, and Hallgren 1995; Sjostrom et al.

Patients with CHAIN REACTIONS functional ankle instability change their postural stabilization by using a hip strategy, while subjects without instability favor an ankle strategy (Tropp and Odenrick 1988).
