Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Knows Well the Spine and Its Connections

Nerves. Discs. Muscles. The spine connects them all! And back pain is a complex condition often including all these components. Your Auburn chiropractor at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. appreciates every one of these spinal elements. Your Auburn chiropractor respects each of these spinal parts. Your Auburn chiropractor relieves Auburn back pain and neck pain associated with these spinal elements with gentle chiropractic services and Cox® Technic at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C..


The spine is the body’s support system. The spine links everything! The spine’s bones – called vertebrae – link ligaments, muscles and discs to form 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 new 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. Notably, 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 helpful for you!
