2 Pain in the Rear of Leg
Another frequently affected area is the hip, specifically the back of the thigh. Like in the case of lower back pain, the cause is the strain of the spinal disk on the roots of the lumbar nerve. The result is a pain that is often sharp and worsens, and that aggravates with motion. It could be a dull pain, a dull ache, or pain that comes and goes. Fortunately, medications can help to alleviate the pain.
