Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Knows Well the Spine and Its Connections

Nerves. Discs. Muscles. What connects them all? The spine! And back pain is a complex condition often including all these components. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic appreciates every one of these spinal elements. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor pays great attention to each of these spinal parts. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor relieves Fernandina Beach back pain and neck pain connected to these spinal elements with gentle chiropractic services and Cox® Technic at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic.

THE SPINE

The spine is the body’s support system. The spine unites everything! The spine’s bones – called vertebrae – link ligaments, muscles and discs to make up this support system. 25 intervertebral discs separate the typical 33 vertebrae. Three parts comprise 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 safeguard and permit nutrients into the nucleus. The disc gives the spine its flexibility and strength. (1) Seemingly off-topic but really not as these findings demonstrate just how linked 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 reported to grow the thickness of lumbar spine stabilizing muscles, transverse abdominis and lumbar multifidus muscles. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is amazed by what diaphragm-focused treatment does for such muscles. It all reflects on how complexly the spine is designed and connected! Interesting! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic enjoys taking care of Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients’ spines every day!

NERVES

Spinal nerves weave their ways throughout the spine, collecting and sending impulses from head to toe. The superior gluteal nerve makes 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 injured, it usually causes an obviously different walking and standing gait because of the gluteus medius muscle paralysis it produces. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic back pain patients understand how sensitive these spinal nerves are and so does Amelia Chiropractic Clinic.

MUSCLES

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’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 cause of low back pain. (4) The quadratus lumborum muscle is key to stability. Its deep, posterior, lateral and interior location around the spine often brings into question its contributing role in back pain. It is 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, maintaining the center of gravity, as well as stability. Interestingly, in a research study of women with chronic low back pain, stability exercises and balance exercises involving the external oblique muscle improved erector spinae muscle activity and reduced pain and disability. (6) That’s why Amelia Chiropractic Clinic routinely suggests exercise to Fernandina Beach back pain patients as part of the chiropractic treatment plan. Don’t worry! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic makes sure these are simple and helpful for you!
