One of the common causes of lower back pain is muscle strain often related to heavy physical labor, lifting, or exercise. Usually self-treatable, except for chronic or severe cases. Most cases are acute and short-term.

People affected - It often affects people who are 65+ years old, but it is also common in men and women over 20 years.
