Groton Back Pain Relief with Paraspinal Muscle Health

Paraspinal muscles? Where are they? These muscles align the spine. They support the spine and allow it to move. And their health counts. Their health play a role in your posture, your back pain condition, and your ability to move your spine as you must and desire.  Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office recommends exercises as part of the chiropractic treatment plan to strengthen and preserve the strength of these critical paraspinal muscles in the control of Groton 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. 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 well-being 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. Attempts 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 Groton low back pain: fatty infiltration of muscles and muscle weakness. 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 resulted. (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 reason that these changes added to the back pain astronauts have. (3) Groton does not have many astronauts in its population, so Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office will help you find the right form of exercise – be it high intensity or other such exercise – for your optimal improvement of Groton back pain.
