19 Jan Quadratus lumborum (QL) muscle
The QL muscle, which connects the last rib to the pelvis, is responsible for pelvic stability and structural alignment. It is a common source of low back pain.
The muscle can become irritated when the lower body is engaged while the upper body is still. For example, activities that could irritate the QL muscle are:
Lifting that requires leaning over something (such as getting groceries out of a trunk)
Leaning over a sink while doing dishes
Sitting slumped in a chair
Running on uneven pavement
This muscle must be stretched and massaged simultaneously by your therapist in order to reduce lower back pain.
Massage therapy can provide substantial healing and pain relief for people suffering from low back pain caused by muscle tension and strain, if the correct muscles are targeted.
Dysfunction in this muscle (the QL) can lead to severe and debilitating low back pain. We are recommend that you should do follow this clip 2 times per day.
