Lumbago. Middle aged woman suffering from lower back pain, generally known as lumbago. Back pain is one of the most common disorders which affect people at some stage of their lives. In many cases no definite cause is found and no exact treatment can be prescribed because the pain gets better by using analgesic drugs together with bed rest on a firm mattress or board. Lumbago may, however, be caused by a sudden turning or bending movement. In severe cases, it may be due to intervertebral disc prolapse of the spine.
