DO YOU HAVE LOW BACK PAIN?! [QL RELEASE]
🤔Do you need a weekly stretching routine and video library of stretches and muscle releases? Join JoePro! Link in my profile!
Your QL muscle (quadratus lumborum) can cause you all sorts of back pain and refer pain into your hip and glutes. Having a tight QL can mean frustrating back pain that can cause way too much trouble😡
What does the Quadratus Lumborum muscle do?
It's located from the top of your pelvis and attaches on to the bottom rib and the side of your spine. It helps you extend backwards, bend to the side, bend forwards and can help in breathing! The QL can also refer pain into the butt and side of the hip!
Symptoms of QL Dysfunction!
👉 Deep, aching in the low back, often worse in sitting or standing
👉 Pain with coughing and sneezing
👉 Pain rolling to either side when lying on your back
👉 Pain can refer to the groin and mimic sciatica symptoms
👉 You may have one side of your pelvis lifted higher than the other
HERE'S HOW TO PERFORM THE QL RELEASE!
💥 I have my trusty golf club again, but you can use the handle of anything!
1️⃣ Grab your weapon of choice for this Release!
2️⃣ Pin it somewhere it won't move too much!
I pinned my golf club on the window sill, and it's the perfect height!
💥 Finding the QL
If you read the description above, we know that the QL is on between the bottom rib and top of the pelvis and it's on the side of the spine!
3️⃣ Now that we know where it is! We want to go into the QL at about a 45-degree angle. Not right from the side or back but at an angle! Place the end of the stick on the QL at a 45-degree angle!
4️⃣ Side Bend towards the stick!
5️⃣ Put pressure into the QL with the stick!
6️⃣ Now side bend in the other direction and reach your arm up and over!
