Table 2 Descriptive data of main outcomes. Increased fat content of multifidus muscle correlates with decreased lumbar flexion (p = 0.032)

From: Correlation between lumbar dysfunction and fat infiltration in lumbar multifidus muscles in patients with low back pain

Fat Grade Grade 0 Grade 1 Grade 2
Lumbar flexion (degrees) 24 (9.72) 22.56 (11.62) 11.55 (12.49)
Posture control (degrees) –2.33 (1.37) –1.08 (1.63) –0.73 (0.90)
Movement control score (0–4) 2.17 (0.75) 1.68 (1.07) 1.18 (0.87)
  1. Data represent mean and standard deviation. Negative values represent evasive movement in lumbar extension
