Easley Back Pain Relief with Paraspinal Muscle Health

July 30, 2019

Paraspinal muscles? Where are they? These muscles support the spine. They hold up the spine and permit 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 need and desire.  Young Chiropractic advocates exercises as part of the chiropractic treatment plan to strengthen and preserve the strength of these important paraspinal muscles in the control of Easley back pain and relief of back pain.


The paraspinal muscles of the back are the action muscles of the spine. They surround your whole spine. They move your spine. Otherwise known as the erector spinae, paraspinal muscles let you lean, bend, twist, and arch your back. Their ability to do their job is connected to the well-being of their neighboring tissues. A new study recorded that damage to the spine’s vertebral bones’ endplates plays a part in chronic low back pain. Endplate damage and chronic low back pain patients’ symptoms are described as depending on paraspinal muscle quality. Attempts to strengthen the paraspinal muscles can be beneficial. (1) Occasionally finding the right exercise for you is key.


Fatty infiltration of muscles affects Easley low back pain. Muscle weakness affects low back pain. Exercise is suggested. In another recent study, high-intensity exercise didn’t alter these two concerns for all participants. Nonethless, for those who did display improvement in fat content and weakness, functional improvement ensued. (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 reason that these changes contributed to the back pain astronauts have. (3) Easley does not have many astronauts in its population, so Young Chiropractic will help you figure out the right form of exercise – be it high intensity or other type of exercise – for your best improvement of Easley back pain.
