Lower back pain can appear due to no obvious cause and be from anywhere on or around the spine.
Symptoms include, according to the NHS, a pain that gets better or worse depending on your position, that can develop gradually or typically feels worse when moving.
Causes of lower back pain may be due to poor posture or lifting something awkwardly, due to a minor injury, or associated with feeling stressed or run down.
Treatment for the condition could involve doing a few extra exercises and stretches a week, using hot and cold packs to soothe affected areas, or medication.
