Have you ever experienced pain or tightness in your lower back, but when you try to release it or have a therapist try to reduce it for you, it just won't relax off.
This is often caused by restrictions at the FRONT of the muscle.
The quadratus lumborum is the most common example of this. It can get adhered in the front to the hip flexor and/or diaphragm, but the restriction is usually perceived to be in the back.
Patients then wonder why they stretch, have massage or fascial release and otherwise work the area until they're blue in the face and get nowhere with it.
Here at BodymattersMotion physiotherapy we often work through the abdomen to release this area.
