See a MEDICAL doctor: The more common causes of lower back pain include: back muscle strain, back ligament sprain, fractured vertebra (spondylolysis), slipped vertebra (spondylolisthesis), sciatica, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spinal arthritis, urine infection, kidney infection or stone; tumor in the spine, kidney, or elsewhere; etc... With such a long list of possibilities, one should see a medical doctor.

Limb length : Given your young age of 29 years old severe pathology of your back is highly unlikely if your pain is associated with ambulation i.e. running or walking structural or functional or both deformities of the hip can be present chiropractic care can be helpful in this area however for a more permanent solution orthotics with Lift therapy is what I recommend for the long-term
