Low back pain and adrenal glands

Muscles that stabilize the low back are related to adrenal glands

I recently had a patient come in to the office who had been having chronic low back and leg pain. It was the third treatment over a few months. On the last visit I recommended that he take Standard Process Drenamin to supplement some adrenal material and nutrients that are needed for the adrenal gland’s chemical pathway.

Low back pain related to adrenal glands

Low back pain can be related to the adrenal glands through muscles

There are five muscles related to the adrenal glands in your body. Sartorius, Gracilis, Gastrocnemius, soleus and posterior tibialis (To see more about how muscles are related to the body click here). These muscles are located around the pelvis, leg and foot. If they are not turning on and off properly when you  walk, bend or run your low back, knee and foot will not be stable. This can set you up for an injury or cause a pre-existing injury to not heal quickly and properly.

We are not talking about muscle strength

Working out these muscle more at the gym or with your trainer may help but that does not solve the root of the problem. The switches that turn the muscles on and off are not working. When we move our brain turns our muscles on and off and orchestrates the process. There are many reasons why this process may not work right.

This patient had the adrenal related muscles weak when he came in for the first two visits. We worked to align his low back, knee and foot on the second visit as well as suggesting the Drenamin dietary supplement.

“My hip doesn’t pop out of place when I stretch anymore”

When he came in for the third visit he said that his hip didn’t “pop” when he stretched any more. Then I knew that his adrenal muscles were staying on. The sartorius and gracilis stayed on and helped his hip and back to stabilize, stay in place and heal.

Many people go to chiropractors, osteopaths and body workers to have chronic back pain worked on. If it is an issue with the muscle not turning on and off there will constantly be trigger points, tight, stiff muscles and pain.

The problem is not usually the muscle that is painful or tight

The problem is usually not the tight painful muscle either. It’s usually the one on the opposite side of the body or an opposing muscle that is weak (turned off). If there is a weak muscle the body will compensate and adapt else where with a tight one.  If the imbalance goes on for too long this adaptation becomes more and more stressed.

The muscles move the bones and stabilize the joints. If they don’t work properly you will not be living easily.

    What about chronic painful calf muscles and lower leg pain below the knee or and extreme tiredness. On feet for a few hours feels like I have been on them for days.

      This can be a serious problem called Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), which you should have ruled out by a doctor. If not DVT, then it can be related to your adrenal glands being weak or a hidden cervical disk problem in you neck, both of which can be handled by a doctor that is proficient in Professional Applied Kinesiology.

    I have almost all symptoms of adrenal fatigue, and now they are saying my thyroid is showing to be bad..I am only 29. I have a pain in my left side towards my back that has not stopped in months, and after finding and reading this article I am wondering if this pain could be related to my adrenals? I also pop in and out alot on my knee .. My calf musles and arms feel like they weigh hundreds of pounds on a daily basis, I feel terrible..I recently am familiar with Standard Process, but never heard of Drenamin…Should I start taking it? I also visit the chiropractor alot for very bad neck pain that I have had off and on pretty bad at times for no apparant reason for 3 years now. Any advice would be great. I also am taking alot of different vitamins to help my fatigue, and thyroid

      Hello Christy,

      These are symptoms of functional adrenal gland weakness. You should find a doctor that is proficient in Applied Kinesiology to asses you and treat you. They will be able to tell you if Drenamin is right for you or not. They will also be able to tell you exactly what you need for your thyroid if it is also having trouble, which does happen with adrenal gland stress. On top of just supplying a supplement for the adrenal glands they will also asses you body for other blockages that may be causing adrenal gland weakness. Take a look at http://www.icakusa.com/find-a-doctor/ to find a doctor in your area.

  3. I have had chronic low back pain and serious leg pain, especially after working out for about a year now. I don’t know if the adrenal gland has anything to do with menstrual cycles, but I havent had that for a year either. Could they be related? Would getting a cortisone test provide information about adrenal glands?

    • drciprian says:

      The adrenal gland could have a part to play with hormonal cycles, leg pain and low back pain. Salivary adrenal testing can indicate adrenal stress but the beast way to see if they are directly involved is by going to a Professional Applied Kinesiologist for an exam.

  4. For about a year now i have had chronic lower back and leg pain, ecspecially after exercise. Also my last period was a year ago, could either of these be related to adrenal gland problems? I have been to a chiropracter, and have gotten pelvic stabalizers for my shoes,however nothing has helped. Would getting a Cortison test answer any questions involving adrenal glad problems? My leg muscles just seem tight and in pain all the time, and when they arent the pain in triggered though very minor activities, it is very hard to deal with.

  5. I defenetly have the signs of adrenal exhaustion ,lower back pain,fatigue etc.I was wondering when one starts taking drenamin suppliment,do they have to take them all the time or how long should they be taken?

      It all depends if you need drenamin as a supplement. I recommend working with a professional applied kinesiologist to determine with is best for your condition.
