Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation Knows Well the Spine and Its Connections

Nerves. Discs. Muscles. The spine connects them all! And back pain is a complex condition often including all these components. Your Tonawanda chiropractor at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation appreciates every one of these spinal elements. Your Tonawanda chiropractor respects each of these spinal parts. Your Tonawanda chiropractor decreases Tonawanda back pain and neck pain related to these spinal elements with gentle chiropractic services and Cox® Technic at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation.


The spine is the body’s support system. The spine connects everything! The spine’s bones – called vertebrae – connect ligaments, muscles and discs to make up this support system. 25 intervertebral discs are between each of the typical 33 vertebrae. Three parts make up each disc – the gel-like, water/collagen-composed nucleus pulposus enveloped and held in place by the collagenous annulus fibrosus and two endplates on top and bottom that protect and allow nutrients into the nucleus. The disc gives the spine its flexibility and strength. (1) Seemingly off-topic but really not as these findings demonstrate just how linked the spine is, more articles surface about the value of diaphragm training for muscle relaxation like the hamstring muscles. In a recent study, this training is shown to grow the thickness of lumbar spine stabilizing muscles, transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus muscles. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is amazed by what diaphragm-focused treatment does for such muscles. It all goes back to how complexly the spine is created and connected! Interesting! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation enjoys taking care of Tonawanda chiropractic patients’ spines every day!


Spinal nerves intertwine their paths in the spine, gathering and dispersing impulses from head to toe. The superior gluteal nerve winds its ways through the lower pelvis via the L4, L5 and S1 nerve roots in the sacral plexus. It supplies nerves to the gluteus medius, gluteus minimum and tensor fasciae latae muscles. If injured, it usually creates an obviously different walking and standing gait due to the gluteus medius muscle paralysis it triggers. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation back pain patients understand how sensitive these spinal nerves are and so does Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation.


The spine relies on muscles to keep it together. The psoas muscle runs along both sides of the spinal vertebral column down to the pelvis. It is deep and comes off the lumbar vertebrae, L1-L4, adjoining much more - the less trochanter of the femur, iliopsoas muscle, psoas major muscle, inconsistent psoas minor muscle, iliac fascia, iliacus muscle, and inguinal ligament – affecting postural function and having an effect on mood and stress disorders as a reason for low back pain. (4) The quadratus lumborum muscle is key to stability. Its deep, posterior, lateral and interior location around the spine often brings into question its contributing role in back pain. It is an essential part of the thoracolumbar fascia muscle system as it surrounds the iliac crest, the transverse processes of lumbar spine’s vertebrae and 12th rib. (5) The external oblique muscle is central to balance, preserving the center of gravity, and stability. Notably, in a research study of women with chronic low back pain, stability exercises and balance exercises regarding the external oblique muscle increased erector spinae muscle activity and decreased pain and disability. (6) That is why Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation routinely recommends exercise to Tonawanda back pain patients as part of the chiropractic treatment plan. Do not worry! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation makes sure these are simple and effective for you!
