All spinal muscles become extremely vulnerable if the abdominal muscles are weak and deconditioned. Any sudden movement, bad twist, heavy lifting (especially with a bad technique) can cause an injury to these muscles and create Trigger Points in them. Poor posture (slouching, uneven weight distribution) are another cause of Trigger Points and unexplained back pain.
