According to The Concise Book of Trigger Points, issues with the Quadratus Lumborum (a deep ‘core’ muscle responsible for side bending) can lead to symptoms such as:

  • Renal tubular acidosis (accumulation of acid in the body)
  • Scoliosis
  • Mechanical low back pain.
  • Hip and buttock pain
  • Greater trochanteric pain (side of your hip)
  • Pain when turning in bed
  • Pain when standing upright
  • Persistent deep lower backache at rest
  • Pain on coughing and sneezing
  • Pain on sexual intercourse

Holy moly? Seriously?

Actually I can agree with a number of these especially as it’s an area I can have trouble with (if I sit too much or neglect my body/ movement).

Using Tennis balls is a great way to help with Trigger points. Just ask my clients who have a love/ hate relationship with them 😉
