Lumbar paraspinals are the muscles which control movement of the low back. These muscles are responsible for extension, stabilization and lateral flexion of the low back. The abdominal muscles are the primary flexors of the low back (they help you bend forward and sit up). These two muscle groups stabilize the spine and provide protection against injury. It is imperative to the health of your lumbar spine that these muscles are strong and well balanced.
