What Is a Lumbar Strain/Sprain?

A low back muscle strain occurs when the muscles of the back are abnormally stretched too far. A lumbar sprain occurs when the ligaments which are the tough bands of tissue that hold bones together are torn from their attachments. Differentiating a strain from a sprain can be difficult, as both injuries have similar symptoms. 

Many doctors refer to both injuries as a category called “musculoligamentous injuries” of the lumbar spine. In general, it does not matter what you call the problem because the treatment and prognosis for back sprains and strains are the same.
