Nerves. Discs. Muscles. The spine connects them all! And back pain is
a complex condition typically including all these elements.
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center values
every one of these spinal elements. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor
pays great attention to each of these spinal elements.
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor decreases Fort Wayne
back pain and neck pain related to these
spinal elements with gentle chiropractic services and Cox® Technic at
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center.
It is the
body’s support system. The spine connects everything! The spine’s
bones – called vertebrae – link ligaments, muscles and discs
to form this support system. 25 intervertebral discs are
between each of the typical 33 vertebrae. Three parts form
each disc – the gel-like, water/collagen-composed nucleus pulposus surrounded
and held in place by the collagenous annulus fibrosus and two endplates on top
and bottom that safeguard and allow nutrients into the
nucleus. The disc keeps the
spine flexible and strong. (1) Seemingly off-topic but really not as these
findings show just how connected the spine is, more articles emerge about the importance
of diaphragm training for muscle relaxation like the hamstring muscles. In a new
study, this training is documented to boost
the thickness of lumbar spine stabilizing muscles, transverse abdominis and
lumbar multifidus muscles. (2) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center is astounded by
what diaphragm-focused treatment does for such muscles. It all reflects
on how intricately the spine is designed and
connected! Interesting! Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center enjoys taking
care of Fort Wayne chiropractic patients’ spines every day!
Spinal nerves intertwine
their ways throughout the spine, gathering
and dispersing impulses from head to toe. The superior gluteal
nerve winds its ways through the lower pelvis by 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 usually creates an obviously different
walking and standing gait because of the gluteus medius muscle
paralysis it triggers. (3) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center back pain
patients know how sensitive these spinal nerves
are and so does Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center.
The spine relies
on muscles to keep it together. The psoas muscle runs along both sides of the spinal
vertebral column down to the pelvis. It’s deep and comes off the lumbar vertebrae, L1-L4, attaching to 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 draws into question its contributing role in back pain. It is 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, maintaining the center of gravity, and stability. Interestingly, in a research study of women
with chronic low back pain, stability exercises and balance exercises involving
the external oblique muscle increased erector spinae muscle activity
and reduced pain and disability. (6) That is why Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center
customarily recommends exercise to Fort Wayne
back pain patients as part of the chiropractic treatment
plan. Don’t worry! Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center ensures these are easy
and effective for you!
