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 are
between each of the usual 33 vertebrae. Three parts comprise
each disc – the gel-like, water/collagen-composed nucleus pulposus surrounded
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 keeps the
spine flexible and strong. (1) Seemingly off-topic but really not as these
findings demonstrate just how linked the spine is, more articles emerge about the value
of diaphragm training for muscle relaxation like the hamstring muscles. In a recent
study, this training is reported to boost
the thickness of lumbar spine stabilizing muscles, transverse abdominis and
lumbar multifidus muscles. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is astounded by
what diaphragm-focused treatment does for such muscles. It all reflects
on how intricately the spine is created and
connected! Fascinating! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. enjoys taking
care of Auburn chiropractic patients’ spines every day!
Spinal nerves intertwine
their ways in the spine, gathering
and dispersing impulses from head to toe. The superior gluteal
nerve makes 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 damaged,
it often causes an obviously different
walking and standing gait because of the gluteus medius muscle
paralysis it triggers. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. back pain
patients understand how touchy these spinal nerves
are and so does Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C..
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’s deep and comes off the lumbar vertebrae, L1-L4, adjoining 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 influencing mood and stress
disorders as a reason for low back pain. (4) The quadratus lumborum muscle is key
to stability. Its deep, posterior, lateral and interior location around the
spine often brings 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. Interestingly, 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 reduced pain and disability. (6) That’s why Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
routinely suggests exercise to Auburn
back pain patients as part of the chiropractic treatment
plan. Don’t worry! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. makes sure these are easy
and effective for you!
