Musculoskeletal: If you have a relatively small region of your back that hurts you, it can be from the si joint (sacroiliac), lower lumbar joints, muscle spasms, ligament or tendon inflammation. These are the most common reasons for regional back pain. Try conservative treatments like ice/heat, otcs like ibuprofen-type products. Stretching exercises. If doesn't go away, go to doc for exam and options.
