Low back Pain/Lumbar Sprain

Low back pain results from damage to structures in the back (i.e. muscle, ligament, disc, nerve and bone). Injury commonly occurs following a relatively simple movement such as bending forward or twisting through the spine. However it can also occur through more complex and forceful movements. Pain from the lower back is often a dull or strong ache, the pain may be central in the back, to one side or on both sides of the spine. It may also radiate down into the buttocks, back of the thigh or lower leg. Movement may be restricted, it may difficult to “straighten up” to a normal standing posture.

Management of this condition involve massage therapy, strength and mobility exercises to resolve dysfunction.
