However it happens, lower back pain can make everyday activities difficult to do. Your spine is made up of small bones, called vertebrae, which are piled up on top of each other. Muscles, ligaments, nerves, and invertebrate disks are additional parts of the spine.Back pain is different from one person to another. The pain can come & go slowly or appear constantly in a severe case. Back pain can be go away on it’s own within a few weeks. There are many causes why lower back pain occurs, & one of those factors can be due to specific movement such as lifting, or bending. As we age too, our spines age with us. Aging causes degenerative changes in the spine. These changes can start in our 30’s or even younger, especially if we delay in doing any sort of activities.
