Nashua Back Pain Relief with Paraspinal Muscle Health

July 30, 2019

Paraspinal muscles? Where are those? These muscles support the spine. They hold up 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 want.  Moriarty Chiropractic recommends exercises as part of the chiropractic treatment plan to strengthen and preserve the strength of these critical paraspinal muscles in the control of Nashua 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 move your spine. Also known as the erector spinae, paraspinal muscles allow you to lean, bend, twist, and arch your back. Their ability to do their job is connected to the health of their surrounding tissues. A recent 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 described as depending on paraspinal muscle quality. Attempts to strengthen the paraspinal muscles can be positive. (1) Occasionally finding the right exercise for you is key.


Fatty infiltration of muscles affects Nashua low back pain. Muscle weakness affects low back pain. Exercise is suggested. In another recent study, high-intensity exercise didn’t change these two issues 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 cannot! Their paraspinal and quadratus lumborum muscles were still poor 2 to 4 years after their space flight. Researchers speculate that these changes contributed to the back pain astronauts suffer. (3) Nashua doesn’t have many astronauts in its population, so Moriarty Chiropractic will help you figure out the proper form of exercise – be it high intensity or other such exercise – for your optimal improvement of Nashua back pain.
