What To Do Immediately After You Hurt Your Back? - 6 Steps To Reduce Pain

We use our back every day to complete regular activities such sitting up, lifting and reaching.

Your back is in use all day long making the tendons, muscles, and ligaments in your back work hard.

These three soft tissue structures need to work synergistically for you to function without pain.

Since they are in constant motion it is common for them to tear, pull or get over-stretched.

When someone says their back is sprained they mean the ligaments are overstretched or torn. Now if they say it is strained then that means a muscle or tendon was overstretched or torn. People tend to use strain and sprain interchangeably but they are in fact different and because of that, the course of treatment and length of that treatment differs also.

Either injury can happen so fast and is easy to do.

It just takes one movement in the wrong direction, to sleep in the wrong position, or overdo something!

Even constant repetitive movement can cause a back injury, which is more common in sports injuries.
