or obese these can cause lower back pain. Get both an orthopedic and a PT exam and evaluation. If weight is the issue, consult a nutritionist/dietician and hook up with a gym.

Certain low back conditions such as degenerative disc disease can be aggravated by extra weight. Less commonly, stomach problems can also cause “back” pain, such as in a duodenal ulcer for example. Don’t hesitate to discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor.
