  2. Do patients with chronic low back pain have proprioceptive deficits in their lumbar spine?

    Introduction Back pain is a common complaint that is frequently seen and treated in clinical practice affecting one in five of the population. If the condition remains for over three months it is referred to as being 'chronic'. Research has discovered that injuries in peripheral joints have resulted in propriceptive deficits (Willems 2002, Liu-Ambrose 2003) and this study aims to investigate whether this is also true in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP) as previous evidence suggests there is.

  3. Moreton Bay Marine Ecology

    Green zones have been instigated by governments across the world in order to improve and aid the marine ecosystem, the habitats and the animals that live there. There are many success stories from the implementation of green zones including the Cabo Pulmo reef in Mexico. Research has recorded that the fish biomass has increased by 460%, the average biomass was more than five times greater than the average biomass in the Gulf of California, and that manta rays, humpback whales, whale sharks and sea turtle populations recovered in the area (Cabo Pulmo: A Marine Protected Area enables biodiversity and the local economy to rebound, 2014).
