Modern day lifestyle has made back pain a common problem. This pain can range from mild to severe. Back injuries and strains are common reasons for back pain.

Though back injury can occur at any age but old age people are at an increased risk of developing this condition.

Pain in lower back can be linked to bony lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around spine and disc,  spinal cord and nerves, lower back muscles, etc.
