San Jose 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 thought of as a back muscle as it extends from the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae to the 12th rib. When contracted, the quadratus lumborum triggers lateral flexion of the lumbar spine and/or elevation of the pelvis. (5) A variety of bridge-type exercises are being studied as to how they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s 2 layers of muscle in order for it to best add to the motor control of the lumbar pain and prevent back pain. (6) Chiropractic Solutions and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next San Jose chiropractic visit to Chiropractic Solutions.
