Nerves. Discs. Muscles. The spine connects them all! And back pain is
a complex condition often involving all these elements.
Your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center values
all of these spinal elements. Your Severna Park chiropractor
pays great attention to each of these spinal elements.
Your Severna Park chiropractor relieves Severna Park
back pain and neck pain associated with these
spinal elements with gentle chiropractic services and Cox® Technic at
Back And Neck Care Center.
The spine is the
body’s support system. The spine links 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 contained
and held in place by the collagenous annulus fibrosus and two endplates on top
and bottom that protect and permit nutrients into the
nucleus. The disc keeps the
spine flexible and strong. (1) Seemingly off-topic but really not as these
findings demonstrate just how connected the spine is, more articles emerge about the value
of diaphragm training for muscle relaxation like the hamstring muscles. In a recent
study, this training is documented to boost
the thickness of lumbar spine stabilizing muscles, transverse abdominis and
lumbar multifidus muscles. (2) Back And Neck Care Center is amazed by
what diaphragm-focused treatment does for such muscles. It all goes back to how complexly the spine is created and
connected! Fascinating! Back And Neck Care Center enjoys working Severna Park chiropractic patients’ spines every day!
Spinal nerves weave
their paths throughout the spine, collecting
and sending impulses from head to toe. The superior gluteal
nerve makes its ways through the lower pelvis by the L4,
L5 and S1 nerve roots in the sacral plexus. It innervates
the gluteus medius, gluteus minimum and tensor fasciae latae muscles. If damaged,
it often creates an unmistakable
walking and standing gait because of the gluteus medius muscle
paralysis it produces. (3) Back And Neck Care Center back pain
patients know how touchy these spinal nerves
are and so does Back And Neck Care Center.
The spine depends
on muscles to maintain its connections. The psoas muscle passes along both sides of the spinal
vertebral column down to the pelvis. It is deep and comes off the lumbar vertebrae, L1-L4, adjoining much more - the less
trochanter of the femur, iliopsoas muscle, psoas major muscle, inconsistent
psoas minor muscle, iliac fascia, iliacus muscle, and inguinal ligament – affecting
postural function and having an effect on mood and stress
disorders as a reason for low back pain. (4) The quadratus lumborum muscle is central
to stability. Its deep, posterior, lateral and interior location around the
spine often brings into question its contributing role in back pain. It’s an important 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, preserving the center of gravity, as
well as stability. Notably, 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 decreased pain and disability. (6) That’s why Back And Neck Care Center
customarily suggests exercise to Severna Park
back pain patients as part of the chiropractic treatment
plan. Don’t worry! Back And Neck Care Center ensures these are easy
and effective for you!
