The most common injury of the lower back while playing sports is the slipped disc injuries that causes sciatica (inflammation of a nerve in the leg).
Low back pain is one of the most common causes of musculoskeletal pain. There are a multitude of potential causes of low back pain, which can include everything from simple sprains to complicated disc ruptures and nerve injuries. While some injuries of the low back lead only to pain in the affected area, some low back injuries can also bring about radiating pain to other areas, like the legs. Injuries to the discs, facet joints, sacroiliac joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the low back region can lead to both acute and chronic low back pain. Conditions like sciatica and piriformis syndrome can be caused or exacerbated by low back injuries.
