Iliolumbar Syndrome involves an inflammation, sprain, tear, or other injury of the iliolumbar ligament, which stretches from the final lumbar vertebra to the iliac crest. Injuries usually affect the ligament’s attachment site at the ilium. At a moment of instability in the lumbar vertebrae, L4 can slip in relation to L5, which can cause a disc herniation and worsen the initial ligament injury.
Although the iliolumbar ligament can be affected by direct trauma, the syndrome usually has to do with sports like golf, tennis, skiing, football, volleyball, etc., where muscles and their tendons could overstretch.
Symptoms include pain in the lumbar spine, pain when bending forward or twisting, muscle spasms on the same side, sensitivity, and reduced range of motion. The pain can manifest on either or both sides, and spread along the back, thighs, groin, and genital area.
An iliolumbar sprain doesn’t have to cause years of suffering, if diagnosed and treated properly. One shouldn’t ignore the pain either, as this can make the injury worse and make the usual recovery period of a few days to a few weeks much longer. The goals of the rehabilitation are to reduce the pain, restore motion in the affected area, and prevent recurrence. The rehabilitation includes lower back and abdomen stretches, as they help stabilize the waist. It also includes muscle tone improvement exercises for the groin and thighs.
