The lumbar spine, the medical term for the lower back, plays an important role in the human body. Consisting of muscles, nerves, cartilage, ligaments, bones, and joints, the lumbar spine is responsible for supporting the rest of the spine, carrying most of our body weight, and bearing most of the strain when we lift and carry heavy objects. Because of the lumbar spine’s complex structure and frequent movement, it is highly susceptible to discomfort, pain, and injury.
Lumbar pain impacts almost everyone at some point in their life and becomes increasingly common as we age. It often is caused by wear and tear from repetitive movements or it can result from traumatic injury.
