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!
