What causes back pain?

Younger adults are more likely to experience back pain due to disc problems i.e., lumbar disc herniation, degenerative disc disease or lumbar muscle strain/lumbar sprain. Older adults are more likely to suffer from pain related to joint degeneration, i.e., osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, from a compression fracture or related to a malignancy.
