Low back pain facts
Functions of the low back, or lumbar area, include
structural support, movement, and protection of certain body tissues.
Pain in the low back can relate to the bony
lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and
discs, spinal cord and nerves, muscles of the low back, internal organs of the
pelvis and abdomen, and the skin covering the lumbar area.
Treatment of low back pain is optimally directed toward a diagnosed or suspected
specific cause. For acute lumbar strain, use of a home remedy initially can be beneficial.
