Welcome to the Lumbar Spine.
The Lumbar spine is the equivalent of the cervical spine in the lower section of the human body. The lumbar spine is a dynamic, neurologically dense region, permitting dynamic range of motion coupled with structural support. Further, like the cervical region, the lumbar region has strong movement and pathological associations with the pelvic floor, the pelvis, and the hips.
In this section, you will have the ability to review the bony, soft tissue, and joint mechanics of the lumbar spine, as well as common pathology and clinical testing procedures you’ll require to be successful both in clinic and upon examination.
