Is everything OK? Hollywood actor Chris Hemsworth, 37, (PICTURED) has sought specialist treatment at a Gold Coast hospital for a ‘severe back injury’ in recent weeks as filming continues for Thor: Love and Thunder

Chris has been bulking up with intense training for both his fourth Thor movie, and an upcoming biopic for WWE wrestling royalty Hulk Hogan.

The publication claimed it’s unclear how Chris sustained the injury, but appeared to be on the mend.  

It’s believed Chris’ severe back pain and swelling was seen to by ‘specialist doctors’, who administered cortisone injections into the Australian actor’s back.

It’s understand the hospital visit was kept brief, and Chris was not required to stay overnight after the treatment.

Chris previously has spoken about his back troubles, having told Men’s Health UK in March 2019 that he had to change up his training and nutrition to stop the injuries becoming ‘a drag’ while training for and filming the Thor movies.  

Chris told the publication at the time: ‘On certain days, when I’ve had a few injuries – and I had quite a few during Thor – it can start to become a drag, you know? But over the past year or so, I changed up a lot of my training and nutrition program, and I feel the best I’ve ever felt.’ 

‘I’ve found that, after lifting weights for so long and not getting in touch with my fast-twitch fibres, the snappiness that my body had [has gone]. In the dads’ race at my kid’s school last year, I hadn’t sprinted in about five years – then, boom, you go and do a 100m sprint at full pelt. My back was cranked for weeks,’ he admitted.

‘I need to do some more sprint work, I guess. It just hurts. Running is painful. I don’t do a lot of running for that reason. I’d rather have mobility in my body from surfing and get that fluidity that I enjoy,’ Chris said.

Chris and Spanish actress wife Elsa Pataky both have filming commitments in Sydney at the moment for separate projects.

The Hollywood couple have so far managed to fly back and forth from New South Wales’ capital city to their coastal home of Byron Bay to be with their three children in between filming dates on set.

The flight takes approximately one hour and 15 minutes.

The couple, who share daughter India Rose, eight, and twin sons Sasha and Tristan, six, live in a $30million mansion in Broken Head, near Byron Bay.
