Lumbar strain is considered as one of the most common causes of low back pain.

A lumbar strain is a stretch injury to the ligaments, tendons, and/or muscles of the lower back.

The injury can occur because of overuse or improper use of the muscles.

Diagnosis of lumbar strain is based on the history of injury, the location of the pain, and exclusion of nervous system injury.

Usually, X-ray testing is helpful to exclude bone abnormalities.

Physiotherapy to strengthen the muscles in the lower abdomen and back will be helpful in your case.

Management of tail bone sprain is normally supportive. Usually there are no surgeries done for tail bone injury or sprain.

You can continue taking simple analgesics for relief of pain.

Hope I answered your query. I will be available for followup querries if any.

Wish you good health.
