Pain in the Lower Left Back: Causes and Treatments



84% of adults confirm they have had lower back discomfort at some point in their lives. They likely experience pain in either one or both sides of the spinal column. The reason for the pain may be revealed by the precise location of it.

There are five vertebrae in the lower back. Tendons connect muscles to the spinal column, ligaments hold the vertebrae in place, and discs between them cushion the bones. 31 nerves make up the lower back.

Additionally, your lower back is home to organs like the uterus, pancreas, kidneys, and colon. Your lower back pain on the left side may be caused by any of these.
