Acute lumbar sprain is usually caused by improper posture, or excessive exertion or falling and contusion that impair the lumbar muscles, fascia and ligaments. The clinical manifestations are sudden lumbago and limited movement of the waist. TCM holds that lumbago is caused by improper exertion or falling and contusion that lead to impairment of the lumbar tendons and meridians as well as stagnation of qi and blood.

Syndrome Differentiation
Sudden onset of lumbago, aggravation in movement, limited movement of the waist, inability of the waist to straighten, difficulty in pronation and turning of the body or even standing, frequent supporting of the waist with the hands; or spasm of the local muscles on the lower limbs, obvious tenderness and evident sprain history.
