Lower back pain. Woman holding her painful back (lumbago). Pain in the lower back is very common. It is usually caused by strain to soft tissues, such as the muscles, tendons or ligaments around the bones of the spine. These strains could be caused by poor posture, lack of exercise, incorrect lifting of heavy loads or strenuous work in an awkward position (as here). Treatment includes rest and painkilling drugs.
