What is Lower back pain?

Lower back pain is a common medical condition that affects the lower portion of the spine.

It is typically characterized by pain or discomfort in the lower back area and can range from a dull ache to a sharp, stabbing pain. Lower back pain can be acute, meaning it lasts for a short period of time, or chronic, meaning it persists for longer than 3 months.

If you are experiencing lower back pain, it's important to seek specialist attention to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.
