Correspondingly, what does a pulled oblique feel like?

The main symptom of an oblique muscle strain is pain at the side or front/side of your abdomen. It is also likely that you will have some pain twisting from a seated position, and experience pain when rising from a bed.

Secondly, where are the internal and external obliques located? The internal obliques originate on the inguinal ligament (a ligament that runs from the anterior iliac spine to the pubic bone) and the anterior iliac crest. The external obliques originate on the lower 8 ribs.

Correspondingly, what is your left oblique?

The internal oblique is an abdominal muscle located beneath the external abdominal oblique. Internal abdominal oblique muscles are called “same side rotators.” The right internal oblique works with the left external oblique, and vice versa, when flexing and rotating the torso.

How do the obliques work?

Its main job is to pull the chest downwards and compress the abdominal cavity. The internal obliques, on the other hand, have two main jobs. First, it counteracts the diaphragm (the muscle that contracts excessively when you hiccup) so that you can exhale. Second, it allows you to rotate and bend from your trunk.
