No.: We are never safe from back pain. Low back pain is a fact of life. Just about everybody will suffer from it sooner or later. One of the main causes of back pain, whether acute or chronic, is low back strain. http://www.webmd.com/back-pain/guide/low-back-strain

Possibly: Depends on how you look at it. Must people will have some degree of back pain at some period of their life, very few avoid ever having any episode of back pain their entire life. Thankfully most episodes of back pain are not life threatening and can have a very favorable natural history.

It depends: on the type and location of injection. An injection performed by someone board certified in pain medicine and trained in interventional procedures would be relatively safe.
