Lower Back Pain Q & A

What causes lower back pain?

Lower back pain can sometimes arise because of internal problems like kidney infections and menstrual pain, but most of the time, lower back pain that isn’t accompanied by symptoms of ill health is due to an injury or disease affecting part of your musculoskeletal system.
