Lower back pain can be caused by a number of conditions or injuries, such as muscle strain, herniated disc, arthritis or spinal stenosis. To obtain an accurate diagnosis, patients should be evaluated by a specialist such as a physiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon who focuses on spine conditions. Radiological imaging is usually required to confirm a diagnosis.
