Lumbar sprain is an injury that occurs in the tissues that support the lower section of the spine. It appears when the spine is quickly shaken from one position to another, as in the case of blows in accidents or sports injuries. Learn more about this condition and see a specialist if you suffer low back pain.
Asprain, also known as a ligament strain, is the injury produced by excessive stretching of the ligaments. These are tissues that join bones together and prevent them from leaving their natural position. When a sprain occurs, tissue fibers are broken or torn, which produces the symptoms.
Symptoms may appear suddenly and unexpectedly or for some time after the trauma. Sometimes they subside with rest, but it is important to get medical attention to rule out other types of spinal problems.
The main cause is a stroke. This injury is common in automobile accidents, in which the whole body is forced to move from one position to another in hundredths of a second, causing havoc in the body, including lumbar sprain or whiplash syndrome, which affects the neck area.
Some of the sports with the highest incidence of lumbar sprain include: boxing, soccer, golf, tennis, and weight lifting.
It is important to get medical attention immediately after the accident or injury. The physician will perform mobility tests, inspect the affected area and, if necessary, imaging studies to check the condition of the internal tissues of the spine in all its parts.
