What is lower back pain?
Lower back pain includes any discomfort in the lower part of your back, also called your lumbar spine.
This part of your back supports most of your upper body weight and endures a great deal of stress day in and day out. The structure and function of your lower back are why it’s such a common source of pain.
For most people, lower back pain resolves quickly, within a few days or weeks. However, some people develop chronic low back pain, which is pain that lasts for three or more months. This pain can make working, engaging in leisure activities, and sleeping hard.
What causes lower back pain?
You can develop lower back pain from an injury or degenerative condition. Common causes of this type of back pain include:
