Low back pain (LBP) is a health condition associated with back, core, and hip muscle dysfunction as well as reduced lumbar range of motion. Core muscle stabilization, hip abductor strengthening, and lumbar range of motion are all effective techniques for treating patients with chronic LBP. Lumbar muscular imbalance can lead to hamstring injury because of change in the functional load. The purpose of this case report was to review a therapeutic exercise approach to the treatment of chronic low back pain after a remote hamstring injury, including a focus on lumbar and core stabilization, lumbar and hamstring stretching and hamstring strengthening, and a comprehensive home exercise program.
