Paramus CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise the Quadratus Lumborum

The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is a paired muscle on both sides of the abdominal wall. It is a deep muscle and usually thought of as a back muscle as it stretches from the 12th rib to the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae. When contracted, the quadratus lumborum produces lateral flexion of the lumbar spine and/or elevation of the pelvis. (5) A variety of bridge-type exercises are being examined about the way in which they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s dual layers of muscle in order for it to best contribute to the motor control of the lumbar pain and stop back pain. (6) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center and you can talk about how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next Paramus chiropractic visit to Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center.
