Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise the Quadratus Lumborum

The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is a paired muscle on both sides of the abdominal wall. It’s 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 examined 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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic and you can talk about how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next Fort Wayne chiropractic visit to Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.
