Back pain can be the result of many problems. Back pain in young people tend to be less serious than older patients and is usually the result of muscular injuries around the spine. However, many other causes can result in low back pain including viral infections anywhere in the body including the disc, disc disease (less common in young people), problems in the stability of the spine, hip problems and others. If you continue to have the same type of pain, you need to be examined by a Dr and have some imaging done if necessary.
