Low Back Pain

Low back pain is a common musculoskeletal symptom that may be either acute or chronic. It may be caused by a variety of diseases and disorders that affect the lumbar spine. Low back pain is often accompanied by sciatica, which is pain that involves the sciatic nerve and is felt in the lower back, the buttocks, and the backs of the thighs.


Low back pain may be experienced in several different ways:


  • ⇒ Localized. In localized pain the patient will feel soreness or discomfort when the doctor palpates, or presses on, a specific surface area of the lower back.

  • ⇒ Diffuse. Diffuse pain is spread over a larger area and comes from deep tissue layers.

  • ⇒ Radicular. The pain is caused by irritation of a nerve root. Sciatica is an example of radicular pain.

  • ⇒ Referred. The pain is perceived in the lower back but is caused by inflammation elsewhere - often in the kidneys or lower abdomen.
