What do you know about Ia afferents?

If you needle, you should know plenty...

 

This is a nice study looking at lateral gastroc activity and changing firing patterns with speed of movement. Great if you treat anyone or anything that walks...

 

Ia afferents

You remember them, large diameter afferent (sensory) fibers coming from muscle spindles and appraising the nervous system of vital . . .

The QL...in all it's glory

Today we are going to look at what I feel is one of the most important muscles to evaluate and treat with low back pain patients, as well as those with gait and lower extremity disorders. 

Let's look at some of the functional anatomy of the QL.

It is useful to think of the QL as having three divisions. Though they can’t . . .

Needling and Instability

 

As people who needle, we often emphasize needling the paraspinal muscles associated with the segemental innervation of the peripheral muscle you are needling. For example, you may needle the L2-L4 paraspinals (ie: femoral nerve distribution) along with the quads, or perhaps the C2 PPD’s along with the suboccipitals. We do . . .
