Muscle or ligament strain. Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement may strain back muscles and spinal ligaments. If you’re in poor physical condition, constant strain on your back may cause painful muscle spasms.
Lumbar support belts: Workers who frequently perform heavy lifting are often required to wear these belts. There is no proof these belts prevent back injury. One study even indicated that these belts increased the likelihood of injury.
The amplitude of the postural difference in the lumbar region was small, in the order of 2-3°, and it is unknown whether this degree of change is associated with clinical benefit. Although not directly applicable to the current study, small changes in the order of 2-3° may considerably influence the compressive load at L4-L5 , particularly when taking into account the cumulative effect of spinal loading throughout an entire work day. The effect of angular change in the low back, assuming erect seated posture, is multiplied by its action on the position of the center of upper body mass by means of a relatively long moment arm approximating 20% of body height . While it has been shown that the longissimus/iliocostalis muscle fibre angles change when the lumbar spine flexes fully forward , the change in orientation with a small amount of flexion is unknown. A cadaveric study has shown that minimal amount of flexion removes the stress peaks in the posterior annulus but may increase stresses in the nucleus and anterior annulus .
Lower back pain can result when infections involve the vertebrae, intervertebral discs or sacroiliac joints. Bacteria, fungi or other germs maybe spread to bone from infected skin, muscles and tendons.

Back pain includes lower back pain, middle back pain, upper back pain or low back pain with sciatica. Nerve and muscular problems, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis can result in back pain. Back pain symptoms may be relived with pain medication or pain killers.
2015 — Science update: Added discussion of a popular acupuncture-for-back-pain paper, Cherkin 2009. Which is not fit to line a birdcage, in my opinion. [Section: The fascinating case of acupuncture, formerly a contender in low back pain therapy, but which has now miserably failed well-designed scientific tests.]
Each month, Rachael pens a personal letter to the readers of her magazine, Rachael Ray Every Day. Here’s what’s on Rach’s mind for February, and what’s cookin’ in the magazine. Don’t forget to get your copy of the issue, out on newsstands now! I love that in what may be the coldest time of year and […]
