What Causes Low Back Pain?
Most people experience low back pain at some point in life, but that doesn't make it any less of a hassle.

Injury. Whether you simply turned your back the wrong way while picking something up at work, or you injured yourself exercising or playing a sport, injury is one of the leading causes of low back pain. You may have strained or pulled a muscle in your back. You may have herniated or slipped a disc, which can take months to overcome.
