In brief: Yes
There are non-spinal origins of low back pain, and having abdominal inflammatory issues can relate with symptoms of back pain.
Other non-spinal causes include aortic aneursym, kidney/ureteral issues, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, hip pathologies, and also prostate inflammation. If pain continues, seek out medical attention.
