Quadratus Lumborum (QL) Importance

The quadratus lumborum (QL) and Psoas play a major part in chronic low back pain and tension. People who experience pain in the low back almost never assume it’s coming from either of these muscles. Both these muscles have attachments on the lumbar spine and when they become tight, they can cause trigger points to form affecting different areas of the hip, low back, and even legs. The psoas is especially tight in those whom sit prolonged hours at a time without stretching. The QL also may become tight due to prolonged sitting
