Two Keys to Low Back Happiness: Exploring the Psoas and Quadratus Lumborum
Low back pain and discomfort are extremely common, with low back pain being the single leading cause of disability nationwide.
The iliopsoas (or psoas) and quadratus lumborum (or QL) are two important, yet elusive, stabilizers of the lower back. These are both deep muscles that can be challenging to experience or visualize. These often overlooked muscles play a vital role in maintaining low back stability and strength. Understanding, activating and lengthening them can be a game-changer in alleviating low back pain.
