Severna Park Back Pain Relief with Paraspinal Muscle Health

Paraspinal muscles? Where are those? These muscles align the spine. They support the spine and permit it to move. And their health counts. Their health contributes to your posture, your back pain condition, and your ability to move your spine as you need and want.  Back And Neck Care Center advocates exercises as part of the chiropractic treatment plan to strengthen and maintain the strength of these critical paraspinal muscles in the control of Severna Park 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 allow you to lean, bend, twist, and arch your back. Their ability to do their job is linked to the well-being of their neighboring tissues. A recent study documented 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 reported to depend on paraspinal muscle quality. Efforts to strengthen the paraspinal muscles can be positive. (1) Sometimes finding the right exercise for you is key.


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