David A. MacDonald, G. Lorimer Moseley, Paul W. Hodges, The lumbar multifidus: Does the evidence support clinical beliefs? Manual Therapy 2006

“DM and TrA do not maintain tonic co-contraction. However, these muscles do share functional similarities. As with tonic activation of DM, training co-contraction of DM and TrA as part of therapeutic exercise programmes is unlikely to restore typical activation patterns”

“EMG studies refute the belief that DM is tonically active during static postures, trunk movements and gait. It is, therefore, unlikely that training tonic activity of multifidus restores the normal function of this muscle”
