Figure 3B shows an example of a person initiating a lift in maximum lumbar flexion and the changes in lumbar angular velocity and erector spinae muscle activation that occur.
Whilst a number of studies have focused on lumbar posture during lifting, few have investigated the effects that lumbar posture has on bending moments and erector spinae muscle activation during lowering.
Back pain is associated with weak abdominal and erector spinae muscles.
Based on the results of this study, using aEMG of erector spinae muscles in low resistance modified Biering-Sorensen tests may not be ideal when attempting to evaluate healthy subjects from those with mild chronic or recurrent low back pain.
Directly below the thoracolumbar fascia lie the tendons of the thoracic erector spinae muscles forming a broad thick aponeurosis that spans the lumbar region to gain attachment to the ilium, sacrum and lumbar and sacral spinous processes (Macintosh and Bogduk 1986) (Figures 1 and 2).
Therefore, higher in the lumbar spine the multifidus will lie closer to the midline and so palpation believed by the therapist to be over the zygapophysial joints may also occur through the longissimus portion of the erector spinae muscles (Figure 1a) while lower the multifidus will more completely cover the zygapophysial joint (Figure 1b).
