Dr. Dennis Giannini answered

Specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Pulling muscles: Lumbosacral refers to the low back region. Sprain and strain are sometimes used interchangeably, but these refer to overstretching ligaments in the case of sprain, and muscles in the case of sprain. In the low back you have both muscles and ligaments and frequently have over exerted and overstretched both.
