Augusta Back Pain Relief with Paraspinal Muscle Health

July 30, 2019

Paraspinal muscles? Where are they? These muscles support the spine. They support the spine and allow it to move. And their health matters. Their health contributes to your posture, your back pain condition, and your ability to move your spine as you must and desire.  Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic advocates exercises as part of the chiropractic treatment plan to strengthen and preserve the strength of these important paraspinal muscles in the control of Augusta back pain and relief of back pain.


The paraspinal muscles of the back are the action muscles of the spine. They run up and down your whole spine. They reposition your spine. Also known as the erector spinae, paraspinal muscles let you lean, bend, twist, and arch your back. Their ability to do their job is linked to the health of their neighboring tissues. A new study documented that damage to the spine’s vertebral bones’ endplates has a part in chronic low back pain. Endplate damage and chronic low back pain patients’ symptoms are described as depending on paraspinal muscle quality. Efforts to strengthen the paraspinal muscles can be positive. (1) Occasionally finding the right exercise for you is key.


Exercise is recommended to address two issues affecting Augusta low back pain: fatty infiltration of muscles and muscle weakness. In another recent study, high-intensity exercise didn’t alter these two issues for all participants. Nonethless, for those who did display improvement in fat content and weakness, functional improvement followed. (2) At least most of us can exercise to improve our backs’ paraspinal muscles.  Astronauts cannot! Their paraspinal and quadratus lumborum muscles were still poor 2 to 4 years after their space flight. Researchers surmise that these changes added to the back pain astronauts suffer. (3) Augusta does not have many astronauts in its population, so Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic will help you figure out the proper form of exercise – be it high intensity or other such exercise – for your best improvement of Augusta back pain.
