STUDY DESIGN Investigative case control study. OBJECTIVES To determine whether excessive paraspinal muscle fatigue in chronic low back pain results from a paucity of muscle type I fiber content. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Paraspinal muscle function is vital for spinal protection. Prospective studies suggest that excessive paraspinal muscle fatigability may increase risk of first-time low back pain. As contractile performance of the paraspinal muscles is governed by their constitutionally… CONTINUE READING
