Changes in control of the multifidus muscle are a likely contributor to low back pain (LBP), however, the underlying mechanisms of these changes are not well understood. To date it remains uncertain if pain has a selective effect on the multifidus muscles, in line with the observations of the selective changes in structure in acute LBP, or a more generalized effect. The objective of this study is to help to elucidate whether acute unilateral muscle pain alters the activation of the multifidus… CONTINUE READING
