Colorado Springs 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’s 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 triggers lateral flexion of the lumbar spine and/or elevation of the pelvis. (5) Several bridge-type exercises are being examined as to how they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s two layers of muscle in order for it to best contribute to the motor control of the lumbar pain and prevent back pain. (6) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next Colorado Springs chiropractic visit to The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR.
