      I’m skipping initial diagnostic info.

      I have a patient with an inflamed disc and lots of hypertonicity in his low back.

      I was treating his L2-L3 Iliocostalis and he had tingling in the area. I don’t see how this is cluneal nerve.

      What is this?

        With the increase in local inflammation and the inflammation/swelling in the tissues, small nerves can become “squeezed” and sensitized. So as you were treating the area you were likely on top of some of the cutaneous branches of the dorsal rami branches. I took a screen shot of my anatomy app but you can probably see these on other pics on google.

          TY Carl!

          I’m realizing now that I often automatically assume something like this is pathologic that I need to pursue and treat.

          Very helpful.
