In brief: Wear and tear

Many of the low back issues are a result of disc degeneration.
Often this is caused by aging, but obesity is a major issue as well.

In brief: No back hygiene

Many people don't take care of their back.
They become overweight and expect their back to perform as though it is carrying the weight it was designed for. They participate sporadically in sports without proper warm up or stretching.
