In brief: Yes

Kidney pain is usually experienced in the back.
The pain can also cause you to move uncomfortably, which can lead to further back spasms. You must address all kidney disease. Pain from kidneys is not a good thing.Kidney pain is usually on one side, but the pain can be referred to the mid-line. Most back pain is not kidney related.
