In brief: Avoid twisting
Repetitive torsional (twisting) activities such as an improper golf swing or twisting to put something on the shelf can aggravate the lumbar discs and contribute (in additional to normal wear and tear) in part to it's degeneration.
This could cause pain in an already irritated back , be it disc related or muscular or other. Simple answer best to avoid twisting!
