Your work with lower back pain can give patients their lives back, allowing them to once again enjoy the things that debilitating pain had taken from them.

The piriformis and quadratus lumborum, often-missed muscles in back and pelvic pain, can mimic other dysfunctions frustrating your ability to identify the root of your patients’ problem.

Not only that, the piriformis and quadratus lumborum are difficult muscles to palpate, leaving you feeling hesitant and uncertain in your treatment plan.

Don’t go down the wrong treatment path, feeling defeated and worried that your client will face surgery that you can help them avoid.
