Spinal Ligament Problem Treatment

Spinal Ligament Damage

Lumbosacral strains or sprains, caused by overstretching, straining, or tearing ligaments in the lower back, often result from traumatic events. The surrounding muscles spasm to protect ligaments and joints. Healing time can range from six weeks to a year, depending on the severity. Similar to ankle sprains, back ligament injuries can be attributed to poor posture, falls, accidents, or sporting incidents. Prolonged poor posture, such as slumping, places stress on pelvic ligaments, leading to stretching and weakness. Work-related activities like lifting, bending, and twisting can contribute to lower back ligament strains. Chiropractic care offers support for pelvic ligaments, aiding recovery and preventing further strain during the healing process.
