There can be a number of different causes of low back pain. There may be a structural problem with your lumbar spine, such as arthritis, degenerative disc disease, or even an abnormal curvature of the spine. You may have a bulging disc or a herniated disc that is causing inflammation in your low back or causing a nerve to be compressed resulting in low back pain or even sciatic pain – that type of pain that shoots down your leg.
