Objectives: The main aim in the current study was to use a single-subject analysis to profile the physical performance characteristics of individuals within an injured group and a between-group approach to profile the group as a whole. These profiles were then used to inform single-subject and between-group rehabilitation interventions. Methods:...

Background Low back pain is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal conditions in the world. Many exercise treatment options exist but few interventions have utilised free-weight resistance training. To investigate the effects of a free-weight-based resistance training intervention on pain and lumbar fat infiltration in those with chronic low bac...

In this paper we present an interactive tool that can be used to quantify fat infiltration in lumbar muscles, which is useful in studying fat infiltration and lower back pain (LBP) in adults. Currently, a qualitative assessment by visual grading via a 5-point scale is used to study fat infiltration in lumbar muscles from an axial view of lumbar-spi...

Background Chronic low back pain is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal impairments in Western society with a mean prevalence rate of 18.1% reported in the literature (1). Exercise therapy is suggested as an intervention for those with low back pain by the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society (2). Hayden et al (3) sugg...

Some studies suggest fat infiltration in the lumbar muscles (LM) is associated with lower back pain (LBP) in adults. Usually fat in MRI-defined lumbar muscles is qualitatively evaluated by visual grading via a 3 point scale, whereas a quantitative continuous (0-100%) approach may provide a greater insight. In this paper, we propose a method to prec...

Question
I am comparing two methods of scoring fat infiltration, one visual method involves a 0-4 scale, the other a percentage measured using some software. I am looking to measure agreement and have performed a bland altman plot (attached). Is this impacted by comparing categorical and numerical data?
