Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise the Quadratus Lumborum

The quadratus lumborum – a quadrilateral-shaped muscle - is a paired muscle on both sides of the abdominal wall. It’s a deep muscle and typically considered a back muscle as it stretches from the 12th rib to the upper 4 lumbar vertebrae. When contracted, the quadratus lumborum produces lateral flexion of the lumbar spine and/or rise of the pelvis. (5) Various bridge-type exercises are being studied about the way in which they strengthen the quadratus lumborum’s dual layers of muscle in order for it to best contribute to the motor control of the lumbar pain and avert back pain. (6) Soft Health and Healing Clinic and you can discuss how your spine may benefit from such exercise at your next Brooks chiropractic visit to Soft Health and Healing Clinic.
