Lower back pain, also called lumbar spine pain, is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Lower back pain is the most common reason for missed work and the second most common reason for a doctor’s visit. Lower back pain can affect anyone.
The lower back is made up of five moveable vertebra and numerous muscle groups.
