What causes back pain?

“Back pain” is a very general term. There can be many causes for back pain, with the most common being muscle or ligament strain. Strain can be caused by heavy lifting, repetitive movements, or sudden trauma between the spinal bones. This can cause inflammation, which puts pressure on the nerves in the spine.
