Brief Answer:
Spine needs to be examined.

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem it will be very difficult to diagnose the exact cause . Your wifes back need to be physically examined and exact location of pain needs to be determined .

An X XXXXXXX spine needs to done to look for osteoporosis , fracture of spine . If needed MRI spine can be required .

Till then she can take a pain killer as recommended by her treating doctor .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
