A common disorder that includes the bones, muscles, nerves and lower back is the lumbar pain. This is a pain that can spread to the feet, the upper legs, knees, and calves.
Usually, this pain is strong, and there is numbness and burning sensation in the legs. Most commonly this is a constant pain, however there are cases where there is a sudden sharp feeling.
