Aaron Chiropractic Clinic Knows Well the Spine and Its Connections

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

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!

NERVES

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.

MUSCLES

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, and 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!
