It plays an essential role in stabilizing the pelvis when we stand upright, and it helps support the body's core when we breathe. Due to its many functions and central positioning, the QL is a primary source of lower back pain. Symptoms include tightness and discomfort in the lower back pain.Symptoms include tightness and discomfort in the lower back region that arise as a result of sitting too long, slouching, weak muscles, unequal leg length,and trauma.
