Lumbago is the Latin term for “lower back pain”. Lumbago is an extremely common medical condition, affecting millions of people every year. In fact, at some point in their lives, Lumbago affects 80% of adults.

Some patients describe a dull, sharp, or even aching pain.  Most often, the pain is minimal and can go away within a few days.  Occasionally, lower back pain can be the result of a sports injury or trauma.  In more chronic cases, Lumbago may be the result of a more serious medical condition.
