When physical therapist Jim Johnson reviewed the back-pain studies in peer-reviewed medical journals published over the past fifteen years, he found that the research suggested that a specific set of muscles played a key role in a great majority of back-pain incidences. The results showed that most back-pain sufferers have undeveloped multifidus (mull-tiff-i-dus) muscles. These muscles connect the spinal vertebrae together and play a subtle, but critical, role in bending and twisting motions of the back. If they are weak, inflamed, or in spasm, they can cause chronic back pain. In response to these findings, Johnson devised a simple series of exercises that focus on strengthening the multifidus muscles--and had fabulous results in reducing back pain for a variety of patients.
