One of the common symptoms of lumbar spine disorder is low back pain. It can be caused by heavy lifting, sitting or standing for a longer time, direct blow over the area, or sports such as basketball, baseball, or golf that involve sudden twisting of the lower back. The risk factors such as excess low back curvature, weak abdominal muscles, and forwardly tilted pelvis can also increase the risk of injuries. The common symptoms of lumbar spine disorders can include low back pain that radiates down to the buttocks, stiffness in the lower back, restricted movements, inability to maintain correct posture, muscle spasms, and pain that continues for a longer period.
