Most back pains are not caused by serious damage or disease but may be caused by minor strains, sprains, minor injuries or pinched nerves. Back pain can even be triggered by everyday activities at work, home or even overuse of muscles during sports activities. Sometimes our back pain develops for no apparent reason at all.
