non-pharmacological treatments for low back pain relief that improved
function and/or pain for more than one month. (1) Yoga, exercise, psychotherapy,
low-level laser therapy, massage, MBSR, acupuncture made

specialists who competently deliver spinal

Americans see chiropractors each year. 35% do that

injuries, and muscle strains. Neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, and headache

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Quadratus Lumborum
The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is
a paired muscle on the left and right side of the abdominal
wall. It is a deep muscle and typically considered a back muscle as it stretches from the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae to the 12th rib. When
contracted, the quadratus lumborum causes lateral flexion
of the lumbar spine and/or rise of the pelvis. (5) Various bridge-type exercises are being examined as to how they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s dual
layers of muscle in order for it to best add to the motor
control of the lumbar pain and stop back pain. (6) Cross Chiropractic Center
and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such
exercise at your next Sandy Springs chiropractic visit to Cross Chiropractic Center.
