Conclusions: The data obtained support that there is not a correlation between abdominal muscle thickness and CSA of the lumbar multifidi and LBP in adolescent soccer players.
Low back pain is most often associated with quadratus lumborum muscle Trigger Points (TPs), often with an accompanying lumbar multifidi and superficial paraspinal muscle TPs.
The first treatment session involved placing needles into myofascial trigger points located in bilateral upper trapezii muscles (see video demonstration) and bilateral cervical multifidi muscles between the C5-T1 regions.

The multifidi and transverse abdominis are frequently cited as the focus of lumbar stabilization programs, as their short intervertebral attachments help to increase the muscular component of stability.
