Exercises To Strengthen The Paraspinal Muscles
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
Depends: Hi Depends on the injury and how large an area was involved, but I would expect that it could take weeks. Some injuries, like muscle tears and detachments may not heal fully on their own. Keep in mind also that there are other anatomical structures in the neck other than muscles that can be injured. If you're in severe pain, please see your local doctor. Hope this helps
Can the paraspinal muscles be repaired if they tore? Who could evaluate, treat, diagnose a paraspinal tear? Can muscles pulled from neck be repaired?
No, not Realy: Paraspinal muscles have good blood supply and may be expected to heal when the injury is supported. Ligaments can also be injured when muscles tear, and they do not heal easily. Prolotherapy is a technique to stabilize them. The issue is not repair, but how to maximize healing. A physiatrist who specializes in spine can diagnose and treat these injuries.See 1 more doctor answer
Damaged paraspinal muscles in lower back. Was told by 3 spine surgeons that there is nothing surgically can be done please help?
They are right: First of all how was this "damage" caused and how was it diagnosed? When fusing spines for scoliosis I rip all the "paraspinal muscles" off the bone and they heal fine. I would suspect that your symptoms are due to something else.
Paraspinal tendernes: Not always. It could be inflammation in the muscle or from a strain. A physical exam and history would narrow the diagnoses
I'm 36& have severe paraspinal muscle atrophy. What are the odds of me ending up in a wheelchair? I have frequent falls&was told no cure?
Depends on diagnosis: I am assuming that you have seen multiple neurologists and neuro muscular specialists. It is not possible to predict the prognosis with the information provided. Your neuro muscular specialist will be in best position to tell. Please see one if you have not.See 1 more doctor answer
Lumbar lordosis: Lumbar lordosis is a normal inward curve of our lower spine. Our natural spinal curvature functions as a cushioning effect during movement. When the muscles that lie along the sides of the spine become tense with spasm, they pull the spine straighter than usual. This results in discomfort.
My mid to lower paraspinal muscles are constantly pulled. All mri's, xrays, and CT scans normal. Is there a condition that could cause this?
Lumbar strain: If all tests are normal its probably myofascial in origin. If an injury was part of this we call it lumbar strain. First stop should probably be physical therapy.

What foods can strengthen muscles as I can't exercise I have divericulation of abdomen recti and slight herniation. Dr.S?
See a surgeon!: A diastasis of the rectus muscles (no such thing as a diverticulation of abdomen recti) should not Prohibit you from exercising! A hernia may but that can be fixed. Go see a general surgeon about your hernia. It can be fixed, and then 6 weeks later, you can get back to full physical activity!See 1 more doctor answer
Resistence: The main function of the rotator cuff muscles are to stabilize the shoulder, so it is not easy to replicate this with exercises. However, we tend to emphasize high repetition, low resistance "external rotation" sets with the shoulder down at your side. This limits damage to the muscles while exercising them. Incorporating shoulder blade (scapular) exercises also help.
See details: You can easily search this on the internet or join a local gym and ask them. There are too many to list in this space.
Strengthening: Exercises will not "heal" the torn rotator cuff but can help with the symptoms associated with tendinitis or a tear in some instances. Rotator cuff strengthening with theraband as well as periscapular or shoulder blade muscle strengthening would be helpful. See a therapist for details.See 1 more doctor answer
