Nerves. Discs. Muscles. The spine connects them all! And back pain is
a complex condition typically including all these components.
Your Murfreesboro chiropractor at Most Chiropractic Clinic appreciates
all of these spinal elements. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor
pays great attention to each of these spinal elements.
Your Murfreesboro chiropractor reduces Murfreesboro
back pain and neck pain connected to these
spinal elements with gentle chiropractic services and Cox® Technic at
Most Chiropractic Clinic.
The spine is the
body’s support system. The spine unites everything! The spine’s
bones – called vertebrae – join 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 enveloped
and held in place by the collagenous annulus fibrosus and two endplates on top
and bottom that safeguard and permit nutrients into the
nucleus. The disc gives the spine its flexibility and strength. (1) Seemingly off-topic but really not as these
findings demonstrate just how connected the spine is, more articles surface about the value
of diaphragm training for muscle relaxation like the hamstring muscles. In a new
study, this training is documented to grow
the thickness of lumbar spine stabilizing muscles, transverse abdominis and
lumbar multifidus muscles. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic is amazed by
what diaphragm-focused treatment does for such muscles. It all reflects
on how intricately the spine is created and
connected! Interesting! Most Chiropractic Clinic likes taking
care of Murfreesboro 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 winds its ways through the lower pelvis via 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 unmistakable
walking and standing gait due to the gluteus medius muscle
paralysis it triggers. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic back pain
patients understand how sensitive these spinal nerves
are and so does Most Chiropractic Clinic.
The spine relies
on muscles to maintain its connections. The psoas muscle passes 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’s 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
key to balance, preserving the center of gravity, as
well as stability. Notably, in a research study of women
with chronic low back pain, stability exercises and balance exercises regarding
the external oblique muscle improved erector spinae muscle activity
and decreased pain and disability. (6) That is why Most Chiropractic Clinic
routinely recommends exercise to Murfreesboro
back pain patients as part of the chiropractic treatment
plan. Do not worry! Most Chiropractic Clinic ensures these are simple
and helpful for you!
