Another #QuadratusLumborum #healingwithpilates for the fabulous @zaynagold and @functionfabulous This is a stretch for the opposing side of the QL that is most likely the one felt. This stretch directly gets at the QL where it attaches L1-4 to posterior iliac crest. Also addresses the long overstretched lateral line and bringing body back to the shortened lateral side.
Keep feet close to wall and arm between wall and body. Try not to rotate.
Learned from the amazing Marie-Jose Blom. #pilatesfresno #qldysfunction #healingwithpilatesisthebest

Till vänster: såhär ser jag ut efter att ha legat raklång på hårt underlag (solat på gräsmatta). Till höger: efter att ha misshandlat min vänstra QL med boll och stretch. Ganska uppenbart att mina problem högre upp i axlar/nacke/bröstrygg utgår från lägre nivåer. Hoppas jag får ordning på det nedre snart, för smärtan upptill börjar snart bli olidlig... 💩 #rehab #ql #quadratuslumborum #snejävel

Episode 499: Is the Quadratus Lumborum causing your Low Back Pain? [Improve your side-bend]
.

Quadratus Lumborum aka the QL originates on the posterior iliac crest and inserts on the medial half of the 12th rib & transverse process of the lumbar spine. It’s action = laterally flex and extend the lumbar spine as well as assisting with inspiration (particularly to help stabilize the last rib and diaphragm). So how do we stretch it? Doing the exact opposite!
.

Here is how to perform this exercise:
1️⃣While laying sideways on a swiss ball flex your hip as far as you can while maintaining stability on the swiss ball (this can be tricky)
2️⃣Reach the top arm overhead and down towards the floor. Hold for a couple seconds and repeat
3️⃣Make sure to EXHALE as you reach down
4️⃣The larger the swiss ball the more aggressive you can be with this stretch.
.
📝 If your lat’s are the only area in which you feel this stretch than you can place your hand around your neck and reach towards the floor leading with your elbow. One may think, if you only feel it in your lat’s, maybe your lat’s are the restriction 🤔
.

As you can see through before and after clips this stretch helped with this Arash’s side bend here!
🔑 After you stretch the QL, it is recommended to follow this up with core exercises to help stabilize appropriately!

Back Pain? Try this QL Release! [quadratus lumborum]
-
🚨New QL Release🚨
-
I did a QL release a few weeks ago but here's another way to release that overworked QL muscle! Here's a little refresher on your QL muscle👇
-
It 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 at the top of your pelvis and attaches on to the bottom rib and the side of your spine. It helps you
▪️Extend backward
▫️Bend to the side
▪️Bend forwards
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!
-
1️⃣ Start by finding a wall or a doorway. Anywhere you can prop one leg up and lay the other flat.
2️⃣ Grab your favorite tennis ball or lacrosse ball.
Lay on your back and place one leg on the wall, so your knee creates a 90-degree angle.
3️⃣ Keep the other leg fully extended. *We're bending the knee, so our low back stays flatter on the ground and helps us get enough pressure on the QL!
4️⃣ Place the ball on the QL.
5️⃣ Now roll towards that side a little bit.
*We want to go into the QL at an angle!
6️⃣ Once you're on the QL, bend your towards your chest and use your opposite arm to continue to pull as far as you can.
7️⃣ Once you can't pull anymore, reach your other arm up and behind you as much as possible.

Before even laying a finger on a client a thorough assessment and an in depth talk is needed.

Client presented with #lowerback pain and tightness in the #erectorspinae when trying to lengthen in #torsoflexion
Some Manual work on the erector group to loosen up the area and then some #johngibbons MET methods to stretch it out.

#Hippain around the greater trochanter caused by tightness in the #quadratuslumborum, so some trigger point therapy work in and around the QL to reduce the hip pain and loosen up the range of movement in torso rotation.

This QL stretch has been the stretch of the week so far as many of my clients are experiencing lower lumbar discomfort. The Quadratus Lumborum (QL) is a deep posterior abdominal wall muscle & is an important stabiliser to the ribs, pelvis & spine. Here are some easy seated stretches for you to release any tension, stress or blockages stored within the QL. Hold each stretch for 20-30secs and repeat 3 times. Please remember to not stretch to the point of pain 💙 #QLstretchandrelease #quadratuslumborum #quadratuslumborummuscle #remedialmassage #naturaltherapies #wellnesstips #seatedstretch #qlrelease #treatyourbodykind

Week 4 of the programme. Still can't hold my lower back in squat to save my life at heavier reps, but it went up. Deadlift was..... challenging. Legs were already done at warm-up, so all things considered its a miracle that those reps went up, even with broken down form. Squat: 140kg x 3. Deadlift: 172,5kg x 3. Body and it's past injuries is going through some hell right now, even though these were easy reps for me pre-injuries, this is challenging enough for me and I'm hoping to get some serious adaptations from my body after this. Eating clean now, but stuffing my face properly after these close-to-90% sessions. Still having pain in groin and QL, but I'm writing it off as "adaptation pain" for now. #powerlifting #christianiaak #squat #deadlift #quadratuslumborum #groinstrain #rehab #depressionlifting

According to The Concise Book of Trigger Points, issues with the Quadratus Lumborum (a deep 'core' muscle responsible for side bending) can lead to symptoms such as: - Renal tubular acidosis (accumulation of acid in the body)
- Scoliosis
- Mechanical low back pain. - Hip and buttock pain
- Greater trochanteric pain (side of your hip)
- Pain when turning in bed
- Pain when standing upright
- Persistent deep lower backache at rest
- Pain on coughing and sneezing
- Pain on sexual intercourse

Holy moly? Seriously?
Actually I can agree with a number of these especially as it's an area I can have trouble with (if I sit too much or neglect my body/ movement). Using Tennis balls is a great way to help with Trigger points/ low grade muscle spasms. Just ask my clients who have a love/ hate relationship with them ;-) Check out how to release them here: https://youtu.be/Nb89ys6zOKM #quadratuslumborum #qlmuscle #biomechanics #triggerpoints #thebodymechanicllangollen #tennisballmassage #lovehatetennisballs
