Your lumbar spine is the system that controls the area of the body from the hips to the lowest part of the ribs. Any kind of lumbar sprain or strain can drastically affect your ability to bend, pick things up, sit up properly, drive, and work. Pain from a lumbar sprain/strain can affect your whole spine. The spine is the body’s command center, and even minor injuries to it can affect everything about the way you move. Lumber sprains and strains can make it hard to get a proper night’s sleep, which affects everything that happens while you’re awake.
Spinal trauma and injuries, including a lumbar sprain/strain, should be taken extremely seriously. If you have suffered a lumbar injury, you should see a doctor right away from examination, x-rays and treatment. Since the spinal cord is so delicate, treatment is often lengthy and can include bed rest and physical therapy.
The lower back / lumbar area is very susceptible to injuries because of the flexibility of the are and how much body weight it bears. Lumbar sprains and strains are often the result of picking up something too heavy. If you are expected to pick things up at your job, you should be trained on proper form and function for lifting.
