Low Back Sprain/Strain
Low back pain is a common ailment experienced by the majority of people at some point in life. Around 70% of these cases are attributed to sprain/strain injuries, which can result from sudden, forceful movements or repeated overloading. Identifying these causes is crucial for effective prevention and management of low back pain.
About Low Back Sprain/Strain
Your low back consists of five stacked bones with cushioning discs in between, supported by muscles and ligaments for stability. “Sprains” and “strains” occur when these tissues stretch beyond their limits, similar to a fraying rope. Sprains involve damaged ligaments, while strains entail partial tears in muscles or tendons that move your low back.
Approximately 70% of people experience low back pain during their lifetime, often linked to sprain/strain injuries. These injuries can result from sudden, forceful movements, such as falls or direct blows, but more commonly from repetitive overloading. Activities like poor posture, sedentary lifestyles, improper lifting, and repetitive movements contribute to stressors that may lead to low back pain.
Signs And Symptoms of Low Back Sprain/Strain
- Symptoms may begin suddenly or gradually
- Dull discomfort to sharp pain during movement
- Rest leads to stiffness
- Pain centered in the lower back, possibly spreading to hips or thighs
- Without treatment, chronic low back pain may develop in over 60% of cases
- Limiting activities like bending, twisting, and lifting might be necessary
