What Causes Lower Back Pain

Back pain symptoms in younger people are on the rise, according to the CDC. The CDC has also warned that increasing numbers of people who are under thirty are seeking help for lower backache that is caused by spending long periods of time sitting at desks and also not being active for less than two hours a day.
