St. Francisville 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 extends from the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae to the 12th rib. When
contracted, the quadratus lumborum produces lateral flexion
of the lumbar spine and/or elevation of the pelvis. (5) Several bridge-type exercises are being studied as to how they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s two
layers of muscle in order for it to best add to the motor
control of the lumbar pain and avert back pain. (6) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville
and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such
exercise at your next St. Francisville chiropractic visit to Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville.
