Nerves. Discs. Muscles. What
connects them all? The spine! And back pain is
a complex condition typically including all these elements.
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic appreciates
all of these spinal elements. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor
respects each of these spinal parts.
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor decreases Fort Wayne
back pain and neck pain associated with these
spinal elements with gentle chiropractic services and Cox® Technic at
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.
The spine is the
body’s support system. The spine links everything! The spine’s
bones – called vertebrae – link ligaments, muscles and discs
to make up this support system. 25 intervertebral discs separate the usual 33 vertebrae. Three parts form
each disc – the gel-like, water/collagen-composed nucleus pulposus contained
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 show just how connected the spine is, more articles surface about the importance
of diaphragm training for muscle relaxation like the hamstring muscles. In a new
study, this training is reported to grow
the thickness of lumbar spine stabilizing muscles, transverse abdominis and
lumbar multifidus muscles. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is amazed by
what diaphragm-focused treatment does for such muscles. It all goes back to how complexly the spine is created and
connected! Fascinating! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic likes working Fort Wayne chiropractic patients’ spines every day!
Spinal nerves intertwine
their ways in the spine, collecting
and sending impulses from head to toe. The superior gluteal
nerve winds its ways through the lower pelvis by 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 unmistakable
walking and standing gait due to the gluteus medius muscle
paralysis it produces. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic back pain
patients understand how sensitive these spinal nerves
are and so does Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.
The spine depends
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, attaching to much more - the less
trochanter of the femur, iliopsoas muscle, psoas major muscle, inconsistent
psoas minor muscle, iliac fascia, iliacus muscle, and inguinal ligament – influencing
postural function and having an effect on mood and stress
disorders as a cause of low back pain. (4) The quadratus lumborum muscle is key
to stability. Its deep, posterior, lateral and interior location around the
spine often draws into question its contributing role in back pain. It is an essential part of the thoracolumbar
fascia muscle system as it encircles 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, as
well as stability. Notably, in a research study of women
with chronic low back pain, stability exercises and balance exercises involving
the external oblique muscle improved erector spinae muscle activity
and decreased pain and disability. (6) That is why Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
customarily recommends exercise to Fort Wayne
back pain patients as part of the chiropractic treatment
plan. Do not worry! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic makes sure these are simple
and helpful for you!
