A quadratus lumborum stretch may be the best thing for you if you’re suffering from back pain. This is the best low back while standing at work or play. The quadratus lumborum, or ‘QL’ for short, is one of the deeper low back muscles that can develop pain from muscle knots or trigger points. Myofascial trigger points can produce a deep aching pain, in addition to referring pain to the buttock area. Add in tight ql muscles, and you’ll find it more difficult to get low back pain relief.

This instructional video shows you how to stretch your back while standing. The quadratus lumborum muscle has multiple attachments to your spine and your bottom ribs. If you’re not stretching every angle, you may be missing the one angle that can provide pain relief. We show you how to get the most out of your low back stretch.

About 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes.Lower back pain can be caused by problems with the spinal muscles, nerves, bones, discs or tendons. However, the most common cause are myofascial trigger points or muscle knots.

Please note: If you have trigger points or muscle knots in your low back, you will need to address those through self treatments, either using a trigger point ball or Muscle Wizard. Once you begin to feel better, you can then start to release the ql muscle through this stretch. If at any time you begin to get more pain or stiffness, stop the stretches and go back to trigger point treatments. Do those for a week and then start the lower back stretch again. We’ve found that you may need to do this several times before your back becomes comfortable with the stretching.
