HOW TO RELEASE LOW BACK TIGHTNESS. ⠀
In this video, let's focus on a big cause of lower back issues, the quadratus lumborum or QL muscle.⠀
The QL is a deep muscle that runs on both sides of the low back. It's responsible for stabilizing the lower back while upright, and also has a role in side bending.
A main cause of QL pain is sitting for too long. In today's world, that's usually pretty easy to do. It also tends to refer pain into the hip and glutes (buttocks).⠀
LET'S RELEASE THE QL:⠀⠀
Find a wall, door, or anywhere the legs can be propped on.⠀
Grab a tennis or racquetball. Lay flat on the back, bend the knees (to about 90°), and place the legs against the wall.⠀
Place the ball on side of the lower back. ⠀
Gently, roll towards that side a little bit. ⠀
Grab a mobile device or book, and hang out until a solid release is felt. ⠀
