The association between physical training, low back extensor (erector spinae plus multifidus muscles) and psoas muscle cross-sectional areas (CSA) and strength characteristics of trunk extension and flexion were studied in adolescent girls. A group of athletes (n=49) (age range 13.7–16.3 years) consisting of gymnasts, figure skaters and ballet dancers was age-matched with non-athletes (n=17) who acted as a sedentary control group. The CSA of psoas muscles and multifidus plus erector spinae… CONTINUE READING
