Lower back pain. Conceptual coloured X-ray of the bones of the lower back glowing red in pain. Lower back pain (lumbago) is a very common complaint, and is usually caused by damage to the soft tissues (such as muscles and tendons) surrounding the spine. More serious causes of lower back pain can include a slipped disc or arthritis. The spine is made up of vertebrae (brown), block-like bones that protect the spinal cord and support the upper body.
