Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Quadratus Lumborum
The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is
a paired muscle on both sides 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 triggers lateral flexion
of the lumbar spine and/or elevation of the pelvis. (5) Several bridge-type exercises are being studied about
the way in which 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 stop back pain. (6) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such
exercise at your next Ashburn chiropractic visit to Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn.
