Low back pain can sometimes vary from dull pain and then develops gradually in to sudden, sharp or persistent pain felt below the waist. Almost everyone, at some point of time during the life will experience low back pain that may travel downward into the buttocks and sometimes into one or both lower extremities. The most common cause is muscle strain often related to heavy physical labor, lifting or forceful movement, bending or twisting into awkward positions, or standing in one position too long.
There are many different conditions that may cause or contribute to a low back pain. Many involve nerve compression (eg, pinched nerve) that may generate pain and other symptoms. Types of spinal disorders include trauma-related and degenerative; meaning due to age-related problems.
Bony lumbar spine is designed so that vertebrae “stacked” together can provide a movable support structure while also protecting the spinal cord from getting injured. The spinal cord is composed of nervous tissue that extends down the spinal column from the brain. Each vertebra has a spinous process, a bony prominence behind the spinal cord, which shields the cord’s nervous tissue from the impact . Vertebrae also have a strong bony “body” (vertebral body) in front of the spinal cord to provide a platform suitable for weight bearing of all tissues above the butt. The bone that is situated in between the buttocks on each side, the sacrum meets the iliac bone of the pelvis to form the sacroiliac joints of the butt.
