Lower back pain

The lower part of the back has to carry the weight of the upper body and enables the torso to move, bend and stretch. Most lower back pain is the result of injury to muscles, ligaments, joints or spinal discs.

Lower back pain is limited to the lumbar region of the back, and may be associated with radiating pains and/or numbness in the legs.

Most acute lower back pain originates in muscles or ligaments, and is self-limiting, although it can still be incapacitating. It is usually the result of injury to muscles, ligaments, joints or spinal discs.
