Spinal Manipulation Recommended for Back
Pain…Chiropractors are Skilled
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality 2020 Report states
that spinal manipulation is one of the effective, non-invasive,
non-pharmacological treatments for low back pain relief that enhanced
function and/or pain for over one month. (1) Yoga, exercise, psychotherapy,
low-level laser therapy, massage, MBSR, acupuncture made
the list. The chiropractic profession has back pain
specialists who proficiently provide spinal
manipulation. Chiropractic education focuses on the management
of spine pain and delivery of spinal manipulation. Many folks think
of chiropractic for back pain relief. 22 million
Americans see chiropractors annually. 35% do that
for back pain relief after sports and accident injuries, and muscle strains. Neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, and headache
are other spine related problems people for which they visit chiropractors. (2) Fifteen percent of Australians visit
a chiropractor annually. (3) 4.5 million Canadians see
a chiropractor each year. (4) Chiropractors like your

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.
