Tonawanda 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’s a deep muscle and typically thought of as a back muscle as it stretches from the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae to the 12th rib. When contracted, the quadratus lumborum causes lateral flexion of the lumbar spine and/or elevation of the pelvis. (5) A variety of bridge-type exercises are being studied as to how they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s 2 layers of muscle in order for it to best contribute to the motor control of the lumbar pain and prevent back pain. (6) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation and you can talk about how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next Tonawanda chiropractic visit to Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation.
