How to Treat a Lower Back Strain

by Ian Brown

Low back strain can be a very debilitating injury if not treated early. It can also lead to other problems, some severe, such as sciatica (nerve impingement affecting the lower body).

Low back strains occur from improper lifting, overuse, improper warm-up before activity, violent contraction, excessive forceful stretch, or an imbalance from back to front due to being overweight. The muscles commonly affected are the erector spinae and the quadratus lumborum. The most effective way to avoid this injury is to control your weight and keep a good balance between the strength of back and stomach muscles.

Sit-ups should be done to keep the stomach strong. To strengthen the low back muscles you should lie flat on your stomach with your hands beside your head and raise the head and chest approximately 3-4 inches of the floor. Each exercise should consist of 3 sets of 10 reps. Stretching should be done before and after each exercise. To stretch the abdominals stand with your hands above your head and lean back slightly. To stretch the low back lie on your back and bring your knees to your chest. Hold your stretches for 12-15 seconds and do them 3 times before and after each strengthening exercise.

If you do receive a strain in the low back, do your stretches (without feeling pain), ice the low back and rest for two-three days. If it becomes more severe, or you do not feel any relief, you should seek professional help before other problems arise. If it does become more severe, a therapist will help diagnose and isolate the problem so it may be treated properly. If this is the case the therapist will isolate the muscles that need to be targeted and the proper exercises for effective healing.
