Lumbago

Lumbago is in most cases caused by sudden, heavy lifting or abrupt rotational movement. The pain is local, and does not radiate to lower limbs. Lumbago causes stiffness in the lower back, and possibly also distorted posture caused by muscle contractions. Cold weather and draft may also contribute. The longer the patient has had the condition, the more important becomes massage prior to manipulation.
