Movement may be restricted → it may be difficult to “straighten up” to a normal standing posture. In strains, the muscle is subjected to an
excessive tensile force leading to the overstraining of the myofibers and, consequently, to their rupture near the myotendinous junction. (Depalma, 2011).
Injury usually occurs following a relatively simple movement such as bending forward or twisting through the spine. It is normally a result of cumulative pressure on a tissue (disc, nerve, muscle or bone), which becomes painful during one episodes.
Treatment for Lower Back Pain
- Education, areas of your life that can change to improve the load on your spine.
- joint and soft tissue mobilisation to loosen tissues and areas that have become tight/restricted due to pain and or posture.
- Strengthening of the lumbar spine musculature to ensure great resilience to daily tasks
- and mobilisation of the neural structures to make sure the mechanics of your neural system are working well
