West Palm Beach Back Pain Relief with Paraspinal Muscle Health

Paraspinal muscles? Where are those? These muscles support the spine. They support the spine and permit it to move. And their health matters. Their health play a role in your posture, your back pain condition, and your ability to move your spine as you need and desire.  Moses Chiropractic recommends exercises as part of the chiropractic treatment plan to strengthen and maintain the strength of these important paraspinal muscles in the control of West Palm Beach 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 reposition your spine. Otherwise known as the erector spinae, paraspinal muscles let you 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 new study recorded 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) Sometimes finding the right exercise for you is key.


Exercise is recommended to address two issues affecting West Palm Beach low back pain: fatty infiltration of muscles and muscle weakness. In another recent study, high-intensity exercise did not alter these two issues for all participants. However, for those who did display improvement in fat content and weakness, functional improvement followed. (2) At least most of us can exercise to develop our backs’ paraspinal muscles.  Astronauts cannot! Their paraspinal and quadratus lumborum muscles were still weak 2 to 4 years after their returning from space. Researchers reason that these changes added to the back pain astronauts suffer. (3) West Palm Beach does not have many astronauts in its population, so Moses Chiropractic will help you figure out the right form of exercise – be it high intensity or other type of exercise – for your optimal improvement of West Palm Beach back pain.
