Caption

Back pain in lower spine. Coloured X-ray depicting lower back pain (lumbago) in the vertebrae of the spine. The affected vertebral bones in which back pain is common are highlighted in red. The pelvis is at bottom (yellow). Lumbago is a generalised term for dull, aching pain in the lumbar region. It is a common complaint, usually caused by strain such as lifting heavy objects which may injure soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) around these spinal bones. It may also be caused by bad posture and long periods of sitting. If the pain persists it may indicate a more serious dis- order such as spinal fracture, slipped disc, arthritis, or osteoporosis in elderly women.
