West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise 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 stretches from the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae to the 12th rib. When
contracted, the quadratus lumborum triggers 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa
and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such
exercise at your next West Des Moines chiropractic visit to Executive Chiropractic of Iowa.
