Low Back Erector Spinae Strain

Low Back Erector Spinae Strain involves damage to the muscles, ligaments or connective tissues in the lower back.

This may take the form of an over stretch, muscle tear or rupture which causes inflammation and pain into the affected area.

In some cases, the injury may have gone unnoticed at the time but as the tissues inflame and swell they become increasingly more painful.


The following symptoms are associated with a erector spinae strain:

  • Acute pain with possible sciatic referral into the buttocks and leg.
  • Onset maybe immediate or 24-48 hours afterwards injury.
  • Sharp pain when coughing or sneezing.
  • All movements may be restricted, guarded and painful.


In most cases erector spinae strains are not serious. However, recovery times can be long and debilitating if left untreated.
