Why are core muscles important for back pain?

Have you ever been told about the core muscles and its importance on back pain? In order to explain why this musculature is a determining factor in maintaining the stability and health of our back, it is necessary to understand the process; we will differentiate the muscles into two types:

Mobilizers: Thanks to their characteristics, they have the main function of producing movement. An example can be the lumbar square also known as quadratus lumborum.

Stabilizers: They have the main function of controlling the movement of the joints, giving them stability. Although there are also important shallower stabilizing muscles, these are the types of muscles commonly referred to when talking about deep musculature. An example is the multifidus.
