Table 2 Hip abductor muscle strength for the three groups and ANCOVA with BMI as the covariate.

From: The relationship between hip abductor muscle strength and iliotibial band tightness in individuals with low back pain

Variables With No LBP LBP with ITBT LBP with no ITBT P-values ANCOVA
  Mean SD Mean SD Mean SD  
Hip Abductor Strength (Kpa) 33.51 7.29 27.07 8.01 27.87 7.95 0 < 001 *
  1. LBP = Low Back Pain
  2. ITBT = Iliotibial Band Tightness
  3. * Post Hoc Analysis: LBP with ITBT vs. LBP without ITBT: P = 0.59;
  4. No LBP vs. LBP with ITBT: P < 0.001;
  5. No LBP vs. LBP without ITBT: P < 0.001
