STUDY DESIGN Prospective test-retest, intrarater reliability study. OBJECTIVES To estimate the intrarater reliability, asymmetry, and associated error with measurement of the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the bilateral S1 multifidi when measured by a physical therapist following a short course of self-directed training in ultrasound imaging. BACKGROUND There is increasing interest in the assessment of the lumbar multifidus during the recovery from low back injury. It is important to know… CONTINUE READING
