Postby Bikegirl » Sat Oct 04, 2008 9:46 pm

I just learned that I my multifidus are atrophied. Anyone been through that? I am working with an excellent physio on this matter, but I am curious to know someone else's experience. Please feel free to share with me.

Thanks

Hey Bikegirl,

What kind of exercises are you doing to strengthen the atrophied multifidus?

Hi,

Right now I only have one exercises to do for the multifidus and one for the transverse abdominis.

Multifidus: Really hard to explain but.... here is it: I put my thumb on L5-S1 to feel the muscle underneath. I must focus really hard and picture that I have a rope from my thumb to another finger (placed lower on my butt) and I must shorten that rope by squeazing the muscle). I do this 10 times 10 seconds 2-3 times a day.

I also have the tranverse exercises which is working great, I had a 25% improvement last week!

Do you know any exercises for the multifidus?

Thanks
