In brief: Vague

Radiate into leg? Most painful movement ? Injury ? Illness ? Sudden ? Long time ? Age ? With just the question to go on, what is likely in the left lower back area with no leg radiation ? Could be your left sacroiliac joint or your left l5s1 facet joint or even early shingles.

In brief: See below

There are many potential causes of lumbago or low back pain.
The most common causes are related to strain or injury to the mucles and/or structures of the lower spine. While a "cure" often depends on the actual cause, prevention can be obtained by maintaining a healthy weight, good flexibility, and a strong core. See your physician if you have pain greater than 2 weeks.

Core strengthening , hamstring stretches. Be careful with lumbar extension. Gentle exercises often. Pilates with appropriate guidance can be very helpful.
