Dr. Richard Rosenthal
Pain Management
In brief: It depends
The diagnosis lumbar sprain is not specific and says nothing about what is actually causing the pain.
I would suggest you first seek a physician who can give you a specific diagnosis before seeking treatment. Once the precise cause of the pain is known, a well thought out treatment plan can be implemented. This may involve chiropractic care as part of the treatment.
