Our back is vital. The backbones support us in moving around and keeping our organs in place, whereas the muscles maintain our flexibility. The range of motion in the upper back is limited compared to the lower back, which controls more movements.
The interesting fact is, when we type in lower back in Google, we get all sorts of results regarding lower back pain instead of lower back alone, which emphasizes how people are being affected by lower back pain these days. And among all causes of lower back pain, lumbar strain is a leading factor that brings pain and soreness in the lumbar or lumbosacral area. It is a chronic inflammatory condition, and occurs when the muscles and ligaments in your lower back tear from their attachments.
According to statistics, lumbar strain usually occurs in manual workers and athletes who has gradual overuse of the waist. Apart from this, there are some other possible causes:
- A sudden injury to the low back
- Untimely or inappropriate treatment
- Related to climate and environmental conditions
Symptoms of lumbar strain cover mild to extreme discomfort or pain in the lower area, particularly after pressing stresses to the lumbar tissues. However, each person may experience one or more of the symptoms in various ways. Also, they can be similar to other health issues, so always be sure to get a proper diagnosis. The following are the most common symptoms of a lumbar strain.
- A localized pain in the lower back
- Sudden muscle spasms in the lower back
- Feel sore when touching the lower back
- Difficulty standing or walking
- Unable to bend over for a long time
How to prevent or control lumbar strain naturally
Minor lumbar strain can disappear after a short period of rest. Ice compresses and anti-inflammatory medication are also effective in relieving the pain of a lumbar strain. But if these approaches do not take effect, please be sure to seek immediate medical treatment.
1. Avoid overwork and take breaks in time
The waist is the hub of various activities of the human body. Overwork will inevitably cause injuries to waist areas and induce lumbar strains. Fortunately, most lumbar strains can be effectively relieved with a period of rest. Therefore, maintaining a balance of work and rest in various tasks.
2. Correct poor postures
Poor posture can keep the fibers and muscles of the lower back in a tight state and constantly put undue stress on the lower back, such as bending over or sitting up for long periods of time.
Regular exercise can strengthen the lumbar muscles and prevent the occurrence of lumbar strain. These exercise regimens for the lower back may include stretching exercises, back strengthening exercises, and some low-impact aerobic exercise.
4. Cold or hot compress
Use a cold compress to address pain and swelling during the first few days, and then switch to a heating pad to promote blood flow and relieve muscle tension. Apply for 15-20 minutes at a time, several times a day.
