- Muscle Strain
- Internal disc disruption or herniation
- Contrary to the popular belief back pain never happens because of the lower back. It may be the present source of pain but can never be the actual cause of the pain.
the abnormal body movements from other parts of the body force the lower part
of the body to do excessive work till it gets exhausted. Actually, the extra
working of your lower back results in injury.

- Golfers who play on the weekends and lack fitness or who don't warm-up and have poor swing mechanics are more prone to injuries.
