Pain in the BACK!!!
Updated: Jan 24
One of the most dreaded non-catastrophic injuries that can happen to anyone is chronic low back pain. It’s so common that 80% of adults will experience low back pain of some kind in their life. The low back pain that I will be addressing is the one that just won’t go away. Now let me say this your lower back pain can be sourced from your neck to your feet. I’m not going to attempt to diagnose the cause of your back pain thru a blog that’s impossible. What I am going to do is try to help you stretch and roll the muscle that are tightened to help get you some relief. The most common thing I see to fix lower back pain is rolling the lower back. Although it does feel great, it’s not going to bring the level of relief we are looking for. That being said we will be looking at a few different muscles in the hip and lower back.
Illiopsoas: Actually two muscles that are generally lumped together which connect your spine and leg
Adductor Complex: This is your whole inner thigh, which is connected to your back through the deep front fascial line
Quadratus Lumborum: Is actually an abdominal muscle found in your lower back that connects the spine and top of your hip
Gluteus Medius & Piriformis: Both muscles help with rotation of the femur. The piriformis also can cause sciatic nerve pain when it becomes tight as well as back pain
When dealing with back pain or any kind of pain remember the human body is a highly complex piece of biomechanics, so there will likely be multiple things to do to fix the problem. I do hope that this will give you a better idea of how to deal with your back pain.
