The lower back, or lumbar spine, consists of five vertebrae (L1 to L5) that support the upper body and allow for various movements. Low back pain can range from mild to severe and can be acute (short-term) or chronic (lasting for more than three months). Treatment for low back pain depends on the underlying cause and severity of the pain. It may include rest, physical therapy, pain medications, exercises, lifestyle changes, and in some cases, surgical intervention for severe conditions.
