Could this be a lower back strain or a sprain?.

I was doing a yoga pose (a Torso Twist Hold seen here: image[/url] when I accidently dropped mid twist too quickly (bringing my legs down basically with my knees tucked and torso twisted) and hurt my lower back. The pain on a scale of 1-10 is about a 2-3, so a dull aching. Its localized and does not radiate down my thighs/legs or up to my neck, I notice it obviously after I bend over or twist or when sitting in a chair that doesn't have great support. There's no shooting/stabbing pains and It also doesnt burn, or tingle (numbness). Could this be just a stretched/sprained back issue or a pinched nerve?. It also isnt tender to the touch at all, but, I have noticed what looks like two bruise spots where the injury occurred.

Nobody on the forum is medically qualified or permitted to give advice any responses will be based on members personal experiences only
