Lower back pain is fairly common; it affects 8 out of 10 Americans, making it one of the top complaints in the US.

Causes of Lower Back Pain
The majority of body weight rests in the trunk (middle area), and the lumbar (lower back) bears the brunt of it. The curvature of the lumbar creates opportunities for stress, especially when poor posture or improper lifting techniques are involved.
