Abstract
The article discusses the anatomy of the muscles which support the lumbar region of the spinal vertebrae. The use of exercise therapy to alleviate backache is addressed and concepts such as the benefits of spinal stiffness and a neutral zone of motion are described. The function and structure of several muscles and fascia which help to keep the spine in position are analyzed.
