Multifidus trigger points and back pain.

The Multifidus muscle is a long muscle that travels the length of the back. It helps move and stabilize the spine. It is a frequent carrier of trigger points. These points can cause back pain anywhere along the back and even into the sacrum. When they are bad enough spillover pain can be referred into the abdomen as well.
