Compression of the lower back discs and stretching the ligaments of the back can also result predisposing the lower back to sprains and strains.
Suggestions to avoid lower back injuries:
1. Get out of your chair each hour.
2. Stand at your desk when possible.
3. Sitting on a seating disc.
4. Using a lower back lumbar support.
5. Home exercises on gym ball.
6. Chiropractic manipulation to the lower back.
