SINOPSIS

Clinical diagnosis and treatment of low back pain may be enhanced through the use of imaging modalities. This study investigates the use of rehabilitative ultrasound imaging in the physiotherapy management of low back pain associated with dysfunction of the transversus abdominis and multifidus muscles. Although encouraging, current evidence for integrating rehabilitative ultrasound imaging into clinical practice is weak and several knowledge gaps have been identified. In particular, the impact on clinical outcomes needs to be determined and well-designed randomized controlled trials investigating effectiveness for improving physical therapy assessment and treatment are required before endorsing translation of rehabilitative ultrasound imaging into clinical practice.
