Many things: Including an old injury, posture problems, not enough exercise, or to much of the same exercise causing an over use injury. Even vitamin d deficiency has been linked to lower back pain.

Growing pains: Often due to rapid bone growth that causes stretching of ligaments attached to bones. If persists more than 6 weeks or if you have numbing or tingling in your legs would consult your physician.
