Video Blog - Lower Back and Posture Curve



Hey guys, I'm Dr. Matt Shelly with Geaux Chiro. We have D'ann here and we're working on her lower back and her posture curve. One muscle that find more often than not to be the issue is your psoas muscle, which goes from the lower back through the abdomen, but attaches in the anterior portion of the hip. So we do a little muscle tests. Here we're isolating the quad. So go ahead and resist me as strong as you can. Good, good positioning there. We're going to turn the toes out trying to remove the the quad from the equation and just hit the psoas. Same thing holds strong, so she's good. Go ahead and relax. Same here on her right side, strong, good. We'll turn the toe out and she has a little bit of weakness we have established already on this right side. It's not guaranteed that's the cause of her lower back pain, but it doesn't help. So when a work it just in case so many people on your side, facing this way.

I'm going to give my contacts on the muscle. This is very hard to work. I know a lot of things. We can hit Lacrosse ball and a foam roller, but this is almost impossible to get otherwise. So one of the ART moves, so I'm going to get in and get my contact for her. Go ahead and let that leg slide down.

Keep letting it go. Now arm overhead. Good. Okay. Recoil. Come on back and repeat that again. Go ahead for me. Okay, hold there. All right.

Go flat on your back again. So as we hit the psoas we've worked both sides, but it's allowing some pressure off that muscle, gets rid of that deep curve, so allows for better range of motion, hopefully helping some back pain, taking pressure off the SI joints are just allowing for better movement, which will in turn help her pain. I'm Dr. Shelly with Geaux Chiro.
