Topic: Rotatores Muscles

  Apparatus to provide relief for back pain - Patent 5653665
When an imbalance of a paired muscle group exists, the overworked muscle of the pair causes the vertebrae of the spine to which the muscles are attached to move out of position and pinch a nerve that exits the spine.
Antagonistic muscles of the erector spinae group, including the multifidus, the longissimus thoracis, the semispinalis, and the rotatores muscles may each be exercised.
The semispinalis and the rotatores are responsible for rotating the spinal column.

The intertransversarii are one group of muscles that should never be addressed with direct finger-pressure in the cervical region, to avoid injuring surrounding neural and vascular structures.
Muscles are the body's primary movers and must respond quickly to all changes coming from neural structures.
Tight, hypertonic muscles are lengthened using myofascial release, assisted stretching and receptor co-activating techniques, and weak, inhibited muscles are tonified with fast-paced, spindle-stimulating maneuvers.

 Advanced anatomy: Back muscles by Globalspine.net
Each muscle is small and somewhat quadrilateral in form; it arises from the upper and back part of the transverse process, and is inserted into the lower border and lateral surface of the lamina of the vertebra above, the fibers extending as far as the root of the spinous process.
It is a rudiment of the Extensor muscle of the caudal vertebrae of the lower animals.
The muscles connecting the anterior tubercles are termed the Intertransversarii anteriores; those between the posterior tubercles, the Intertransversarii posteriores; the anterior divisions of the spinal nerves supply both sets.

 LOW BACK PAIN   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
Research in the past ten years or so has indicated the importance of engaging and using these muscles: the transversus abdominis (the deepest of the three layers of the abdominals) and the multifidii (the deepest layer of the spinal muscles).
In a healthy individual with no history of back pain, these muscles work together, co-contracting to maintain the spine's stability when it is asked to move or to bear load, and preventing injury by limiting movement between the vertebral segments.
Muscle imbalance, from shortening and tightening of the iliopsoas, hamstrings, etc, possibly as a result of your fall, is a more likely possibility.

The outer unit consists primarily of phasic muscles (Table 1), although there are many muscles such as the oblique abdominals, quadratus lumborum, hamstrings and adductors which serve a dual role, acting in a tonic role as stabilizers and a phasic role as prime movers.
We must remember that the muscles of the inner unit are relatively small, with less potential to generate force than the large outer unit muscles.
The outer unit muscles, while very well oriented for moving the body, are also very important to stability, often serving to protect the inner unit muscles, spinal ligaments and joints from damaging overload.

Further to the general principles of backbends listed above, bhujangasana is particularly strengthening for the muscles that cause spinal extension — the erector spinae and the smaller semispinalis, multifidus and rotatores muscles that connect the bony processes of individual vertebrae.
The muscles at the front of the body are stretched — psoas and illiacus muscles (hip flexors), the quadriceps muscle (hip and leg flexors) and the rectus abdominus muscles in the abdomen.
The triceps muscles of the upper arms are strengthened and the intercostal muscles and pectoralis major are stretched.

In other words, it is a point in a muscle that, when put under finger-pressure, gives local pain and usually also a radiation of pain at a distance (the so-called zone of pain referral).
On examination I found a very sensitive trigger point in the left levator scapulae muscle at the angle of the neck, and another one in the free border of the trapezius muscle half way between the angle of the neck and the tip of the shoulder.

Core stability refers to the strength of the intrinsic muscles of the spine, notably the Erector spinae group which includes three long bands of muscle tissue which start on the sacrum at the base of the spine and end up in your neck and base of the skull.
Also included in this group are tiny muscles embedded deep in the bony nooks and crannies of the spine, the intertransversarii, interspinalis and rotatores muscles which further help to keep you balanced.
Dysfunction occurs when these muscles are weak or out of balance with muscles at the front of the spine such as the iliopsoas (aka hip flexors) and the ABS.

 Core Balance: Interdisciplinary Structural Integration
The extrinsic muscles lie nearer the surface of the body and tend to move the body quickly and strongly but somewhat imprecisely.
Although structurally deep, lying next to bones, deep under a large muscle, the Soleus is functionally not as intrinsic as the pedal lumbrical muscles.
If smooth muscle cells are found in fascia throughout the body, it provides a key to exactly how freeing an organ or the dura consequently frees a muscle.

One morning, working his way through the paraspinal muscles, he encountered bone-like knots in the soft tissue down near the level of the joint capsule, in the deepest layers of the multifidi and rotatores muscles, knots he had not encountered before.
One is through his concentration on assessment of the muscle firing order in walking (as developed by Janda, though the treatment is specific to Dalton).
Although the proximal and distal crossed syndromes of Janda - looking for the muscle patterns that predictably contain the strain patterns that lead to the pain patterns - are a very important element in soft-tissue work, they will be considered in a later column.

In the lumbar region a deep branch of the dorsal ramus loops under an accessory process and burns cranially and medially to supply the multifidus, semispinalis and rotatores muscles.
It then gives off a small branch to the dorsocaudal aspect of the capsule of the joint at the level from which the nerve is derived.
Another more lateral branch of the same dorsal ramus is directed caudally, lateral to the accessory process, supplies parts of the sacrospinalis muscle, then sends a branch to the articulation a segment caudal.

The spinal rotatores muscles are clearly intrinsic because they are the deepest muscle in that area.
Although structurally deep, lying next to bones, under a large muscle, the soleus is functionally not as intrinsic as the pedal lumbrical muscles.
This allows a muscle to stay tense for decades and then release in seconds with appropriate manipulation of dural or visceral tissue.

 Dr. Deepak Sharan
The psoas muscle (pronounced so-as) is located deep within your pelvis, close to the gravitational forces, and attaches to the 12th thoracic vertebrae (approximately at the level of your midriff) and to each of the 5 lumbar vertebrae.
The muscle passes through the pelvis and attaches to the inner thighbone in the groin called the lesser trochanter of the femur.
Experts who treat muscle related pain call it the "hidden prankster", because abnormalities in the psoas (e.g., Myofascial trigger points) are among the commonest causes of low back pain, stiffness and sometimes shooting pain and numbness down the legs, and even knee and pelvic pain.

 Neck Pain, Neck Stiffness, Stiff Neck, Pinched Nerve in the Neck
In reality, their pain may be due solely to referral from myofascial trigger points (tiny contraction knots) in overworked or traumatized muscles of the upper back and shoulders.
Travell and Simons demonstrated that trigger points in the trapezius and levator scapulae muscles of the upper back and shoulders are the main cause of neck pain and stiffness most of the time.
Travell and Simons believe that muscles affected by trigger points can be the root cause of many apparent disk problems because of the abnormal tension they can maintain on the vertebrae.
