Lower Back Strain

Lower back strains

The majority of episodes of acute lower back pain are muscular in origin. While a muscle strain doesn’t sound like a serious injury, the lower back pain resulting from the strain can be surprisingly severe.

Common causes of a lower back strain:

Lower back pain from muscle strains usually is caused by any type of movement that puts undue stress on the lower back. Frequent causes include lifting a heavy object, lifting while twisting, or a sudden movement or fall.
