Is physical therapy the best remedy for a back, lumbar strain, and/or sprain injury?

In brief: It is a good one

I guess that depends on who is answering this question but it is an appropriate choice & a good one, it is not the best as there are other options including, rest, activity modification, medication, massage, heat and/or ice applications, a simple back support or chiropractic as well as even acupuncture.
It is a good way to learn back exercises & correct biomechanics to avoid a recurrence.
