Quadratus Lumborum Injection
Quadratus lumborum is one of the common sources of low back pain and one that is easily missed or ignored. Quadratus lumborum pain syndrome is part of the myofascial pain syndrome, which is defined as regional pain referred from trigger points and associated with dysfunction. A trigger point is a hyperirritable spot usually within a taut band of skeletal muscle or in the muscle fascia, that is painful on compression and can give rise to characteristic referred pain, localized tenderness and autonomic phenomena.
At Pain Spa, Dr Krishna is very experienced in interventional treatments and performs trigger point injections under ultrasound guidance. Quadratus lumborum muscle can be accurately localised under ultrasound guidance.
