Cluneal nerve entrapment syndrome:

The cluneal nerves are a group of cutaneous sensory spinal nerves( Superior, middle and Inferior) in the low back.The superior cluneal nerve (SCN) originates from nerve roots in the lower thoracic and lumbar spine, and courses towards the iliac crest where it pierces through the thoracolumbar fascia. The middle cluneal nerve (MCN) originates from the sacral nerve roots (S1-4) and lays beneath the long posterior sacroiliac ligament.
Superior and middle cluneal nerves are generally prone to entrapment.
