Eugene CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Quadratus Lumborum

The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is a paired muscle on both sides of the abdominal wall. It’s a deep muscle and usually considered a back muscle as it stretches from the 12th rib to the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae. When contracted, the quadratus lumborum causes lateral flexion of the lumbar spine and/or rise of the pelvis. (5) Several bridge-type exercises are being studied about the way in which 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 stop back pain. (6) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic and you can talk about how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next Eugene chiropractic visit to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic.
