Back pain. Conceptual artwork of lower back pain (lumbago) showing a glowing lumbar spine (pink) on a drawing of the Venus de Milo. Lumbago is very common, and is caused by damage to the muscles and tendons surrounding the spine. Treatment is rest and painkilling drugs. The Venus de Milo (or Aphrodite of Melos) is a sculpture of the Goddess of Love, which is thought to have been carved in around 150BC during the Ancient Greek period.
