Abstract

The anteroposterior dimensions of the underlying paraspinal masses were compared for sites in the PVG identified as being abnormal to palpation and tender or normal and non-tender. No differences were detected in the thickness of these muscles. In young, mostly asymptomatic subjects, abnormal tissue texture in the PVG detected with palpation is likely to be produced by factors other than differences in underlying paraspinal muscle thickness.
