Acute low back injuries can be caused by a disruption to the muscles/ligaments supporting the lower back.

The area around the compromised structures can become sensitised due to spasm or strain in the affected tissues.

It can be a very debilitating injury but early activation and relaxation techniques are important in the early stages of treatment to promote mobility and desensitisation of the muscles involved.

Check out these simple exercises we like to use here at SPI for early rehab of acute low back injury.
