Lower back pain occurs quite often. Patients say "I have a sore lower back", "pinched waist", "cross in back". If the pain is inconsiderate, I can say "aching back", "pull back", "aching loins". Sometimes the pain is described as burning in the lower back.
The lower back is called the lower back - from the place where the end ribs to the coccyx. Perhaps a separate word to refer to the waist was required in order to specify the place where it hurts. After all, if back pain, in most cases, the pain was back.
Most often back pain occurs suddenly and sharply, acute. In this case we speak of lumbago (obsolete folk name cross). The pain is described as sharp, "shooting". Motion bound, sometimes even impossible to straighten his back. At any movement the pain increases.
The pain can last a few minutes, and can last considerable time (several days). It may be that the attack will take place, and the pain more about yourself remind, but often the pain returns and the person gets used that the lower back can hurt.
Lower back pain can be not only sharp (sharp), she can wear pull character and be chronic. A mild but constant pain in the loins, sometimes aggravated by, for example, during physical exertion, infectious disease, colds, etc., are called lumbar region. Sometimes there is no pain directly, but is stored in the lower back stiffness the patient is experiencing discomfort.
Lower back pain can be caused by various reasons, but the statistics is following:
