Lower back pain (also known as lumbago) is a fairly common condition, affecting as many as 40 percent of the population at some point, with the onset most commonly occurring between the ages of 20 and 40. It affects the bones and muscles of the lower spine, and can range in duration and severity from:
Acute (fairly sudden onset of pain lasting less than 6 weeks)
Sub-chronic (lasting 6 to 12 weeks)
Chronic (lasting at least 12 weeks or longer)
In addition to duration, cases of lower back discomfort can also be categorized by the source or underlying cause of the pain.
