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.
