(lumbar region). Lumbar strain often occurs due to sudden movements, heavy lifting, poor posture, or repetitive activities that place excessive stress on the lower back muscles. This can lead to symptoms such as localized pain, stiffness, muscle spasms, and difficulty with movement. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of lumbar strain, offering comprehensive care to alleviate symptoms and promote healing.

When you experience lumbar strain, it can significantly impact your ability to perform daily activities and may lead to functional limitations and decreased quality of life. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process with a thorough assessment of your medical history, followed by a physical examination and may utilize imaging studies such as X-rays or MRI to rule out other potential causes of your symptoms.

Treatment options for lumbar strain at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Rest and activity modification: We may recommend temporary cessation or modification of activities that exacerbate symptoms, such as heavy lifting or prolonged sitting, to allow the muscles and ligaments of the lower back to rest and heal.
  • Ice or heat therapy: Applying ice packs or heat packs to the affected area can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with lumbar strain, providing symptomatic relief.
  • Medications: We may prescribe medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants, or pain relievers to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation in the lower back.
  • Physical therapy: Our experienced physical therapists design specialized rehabilitation programs focused on stretching, strengthening, and postural correction to improve flexibility, muscle strength, and stability in the lower back, promoting healing and preventing recurrence of lumbar strain.
  • Manual therapy: We offer hands-on techniques such as massage therapy, spinal manipulation, or mobilization to relieve muscle tension, improve joint mobility, and reduce pain associated with lumbar strain.
  • Ergonomic modifications: We provide guidance on proper body mechanics, posture, and ergonomic adjustments to reduce strain on the lower back during daily activities and prevent future episodes of lumbar strain.
