Pain in the back anywhere below the ribs and above the hips is called low back pain. The pain may be present in the center of the back or along the spine. Many people who experience low back pain do not visit a doctor, since it usually resolves on its own. They may suffer from dull aches to sharp pains or even numbness; the pain may linger on for a day or two before it gradually subsides. In many cases, it keeps recurring in varying intensity.
