This paper describes the ranges of variation of character-istics present In human vertebral muscle. The samples used are from subjects who had a relatively brief history of spinal dysfunction. The samples have been taken in a precise manner and from a specific vertebral level with both sides of the vertebral column being studied including both superficial and deep muscles. These values for typical muscle for the ages investigated now can be used in studies involving abnormal vertebral muscle.
