For many sufferers of lower back pain or lumbago there may not be any fundamental cause of the back problem. Back pain can occur because of damage, tension or inflammation in any part of its complex structure from the coccyx (tailbone) to the cervical joints (neck).

The lower part of the back, often called the lumbar region or lumbar spine is a common site of back pain as it is often under constant pressure from supporting all of the body weight above.

It's also at risk of further damage sometimes due to lifting heavy objects or making twisting movements as part of daily activities either in the workplace as part of occupational routine, or hobbies and pastimes such as gardening or golf.

Usually, back pain sufferers recover completely, by avoiding further strain to their lower back. Initial back treatment often comprises the application of heat and cold back pain therapy, or medication.

If the back pain continues for more than a few days then it's wise to see your GP to seek advice on an effective back pain therapy regime and ensure that there are not more serious (although infrequent) underlying reasons for the back problem which could include-

Degenerative disc disease – where the discs in the spine gradually wear down

A fracture – maybe as the result of a fall or injury

Osteoarthritis – a wear-and-tear disease that can affect the spinal joints

Osteoporosis – where the bones lose density causing them to become weak, brittle and more likely to break

Rheumatoid arthritis – an inflammatory condition of the immune system leading to inflammation of joint linings and surrounding structures

Slipped disc – where a disc bulges to the point that it exerts pressure on the spinal nerves

Spinal stenosis – a condition where the spaces in the spine narrow restricting the nerves

Spondylolithesis – where one of the spinal bones slips out of position
