Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center Knows Well the Spine and Its Connections

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.

THE SPINE

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!

NERVES

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 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 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.

MUSCLES

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!
