Lumbar Spine Lower Back Pain

Lumbar Spine (Lower Back)

Knowing the main parts of your low back and how these parts work is important as you learn to care for your back problem. This guide gives a general overview of the anatomy of the low back.


Two common anatomic terms are useful as they relate to the low back. The term anterior refers to the front of the spine. The term posterior refers to the back of the spine. The section of the spine that makes up the low back is called the lumbar spine. The front of the low back is therefore called the anterior lumbar area. The back of the lower spine is called the posterior lumbar area.
