Back pain can be the result of a number of causes, an inappropriate movement, lifting a heavy weight or a degenerative disease. Try applying a cold compress and see how things go. Remember, to keep your back moving. Don’t overexert yourself, but moving your back will keep it flexible and help reduce pain in the long term.

Hi and welcome to questiondoctors.com.
This pain is usually due to muscle strain or overuse.ur back muscles are week and you may have a forward overweight (abdomen or breasts) or carrying things may be..
Try doing cold packs then hotpacks and a chiropractor can help you with it.
