Lower back pain comes from muscle strain, tension or injury in the lower back, usually affecting the bones, discs, nerves or spine muscles. The lumbar spine (lower back) is very susceptible to injury. Depending upon the injury sustained by the muscles, ligaments, discs, joints, or vertebrae, symptoms may vary. But the most common ones are:

  • Sharp or dull pain: The pain might come from time to time, and sometimes it is constant. It is accompanied by inflammation or soreness.
  • The pain doesn’t decrease when you rest.
  • The lower back muscles feel tight or constantly cramped.
  • You find it difficult to sit, sleep, or perform other daily activities.
  • There is numbness or tingling, especially in your feet.
  • Your legs feel weak and you can’t move around easily.
  • The pain from your back radiates to the legs.

There’s a loss of bowel movement or pain in the groin area.


  • Poor posture: Sitting for long hours, frequent bending, or lifting loads in the wrong posture are the most common reasons.
  • Spine Injuries: This could happen due to sports or gym, accidents and even simply by lifting heavy loads in the wrong posture.
  • Lifestyle: Factors like lack of activity, smoking, Stress, Weight, pregnancy can aggravate lower back pain
  • Age & Genetics: Hereditary and age-related degeneration an also be an underlying cause for lower back pain
