As a chiropractor, I see many volleyball athletes that have lower back pain. I commonly see the joints in the lumbar (lower) and sacro-iliac (SI) spine get jammed up and misaligned. Also ligaments crossing the joints and muscles in the lower back, gluteals, and hips get sprained and strained. Spine adjustments, soft tissue techniques like Active Release Technique® and Graston Technique®, acupuncture, and KinesioTaping® are excellent to decrease back pain quickly. If you are experiencing back pain that is not resolving, please consult with your chiropractor, physiotherapist, athletic therapist, doctor, etc. There may be an underlying injury that requires an x-ray or MRI.
