West Palm Beach CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Quadratus Lumborum

The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is a paired muscle on the left and right side of the abdominal wall. It is a deep muscle and usually considered a back muscle as it stretches from the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae to the 12th rib. When contracted, the quadratus lumborum produces lateral flexion of the lumbar spine and/or rise of the pelvis. (5) A variety of bridge-type exercises are being examined about the way in which they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s dual layers of muscle in order for it to best contribute to the motor control of the lumbar pain and stop back pain. (6) Chiropractic Care and you can talk about how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next West Palm Beach chiropractic visit to Chiropractic Care.
