There are some unknown causes for getting back pain and these are
Due to smoking:

Degeneration of spine is more present in the people who smoke. It must be noted that the weakening of the disc is termed as degeneration of the disc. Smoking accelerates this degeneration of disc i and as a result there would be severe back pain.
Due to stress:
This is also one surprising cause for back pain in many. It is said that stressing too much could tense back muscles and it could trigger lower back pain in us. This pain might get worsened with the passage of time. A vicious circle is created by the stress and lower back pain and causes lower back muscles to stretch and pain.
During or after cycling:

Many factors such as poor form of the cycle, improper bike set up and over usage of muscles during cycling etc could lead to lower back pain in us. It is important that by being not too hard on oneself and by doing few stretching exercises this issue of back pain could be avoided.
Due to obesity:
Obesity could cause many health issues is known. This obesity could also be responsible for severe back pain in us. The design of spine is such that it could carry the body weight and could distribute the weight evenly throughout the body. The spine has to work harder to take on the extra weight of the body when a person is overweight or obese. In the end the spine gets damaged and back pain occurs.
Unequal lengths of legs:
Many of us have legs of equal lengths. It is important to note that people having difference in their leg lengths could get back pain in them. Even a little difference of 5mm in the length of the legs could make person get back pain and pain would be present in the back on the side of the longer leg. This back pain could be treated effectively by putting ‘lifts’ in the shoe of shorter side of the leg.
Due to injuries to ligaments:
People could also get back pain due to muscle or ligament injuries linked to back muscles. It is said that the pain spreads more around spine and back muscles resulting in severe back pain.
