Doctor can examine: Cause might be: back muscle strain, back ligament sprain, fractured vertebra (spondylolysis), slipped vertebra (spondylolisthesis), herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spinal arthritis, urine infection, kidney infection or stone; tumor in the spine, kidney, or elsewhere; etc... In a teen girl whose weight should be about 120, but has been carrying an extra 130 pounds on her spine, this can be bad.
