New Roads Back Pain Relief with Paraspinal Muscle Health

Paraspinal muscles? Where are they? 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 must and desire.  New Roads Chiropractic Center advocates exercises as part of the chiropractic treatment plan to strengthen and maintain the strength of these important paraspinal muscles in the control of New Roads back pain and relief of back pain.


The spine’s paraspinal muscles 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 what they do is connected to the health of their surrounding tissues. A recent study documented that damage to the spine’s vertebral bones’ endplates is a part of 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 beneficial. (1) Occasionally finding the right exercise for you is key.


Exercise is recommended to address two issues affecting New Roads low back pain: fatty infiltration of muscles and muscle weakness. In another new study, high-intensity exercise did not change these two issues for all participants. However, for those who did show improvement in fat content and weakness, functional improvement resulted. (2) At least most of us can exercise to help our backs’ paraspinal muscles.  Astronauts cannot! Their paraspinal and quadratus lumborum muscles were still weak 2 to 4 years after their space flight. Researchers surmise that these changes contributed to the back pain astronauts experience. (3) New Roads doesn’t have many astronauts in its population, so New Roads Chiropractic Center will help you figure out the proper form of exercise – be it high intensity or other type of exercise – for your best improvement of New Roads back pain.
