How Back Sprains & Strains Happen
The five bones of your low back are stacked on top of each other, with a shock-absorbing disc between them. Your muscles and ligaments provide support for this part of the body that is so reliant on its surrounding structures. When these tissues stretch too hard or too far, they can cause "sprains" and "strains."
Back Pain Is Common
70% of patients can attribute their symptoms to sprain/strain injuries.
Lumbar sprains and strains often occur from sudden or forceful movements like a fall, twist, lift, push-pull. Most commonly these injuries are not the result of any single event but rather repeated overloading.
The spine is good at handling small isolated stressors; however repetitive challenges can lead to injury in much the same way that constantly bending copper wire will cause it to break due to wear and tear on its composition.
Lumbar sprain & strain can often arise because of direct blows such as falls or twists towards one side followed by quick motions such standing up straight after being seated, crouched down, etc.
Back Pain Needs Treatment
If the patient does not seek out treatment, they are 60% more likely to develop chronic back pain. This is why it's important to go see an appropriate doctor early on so you don't risk developing long-term issues later down the road.
