Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the lower back is not likely to be related to the injury you had few years ago. The exact cause of the pain can be determined by an MRI of lumbar spine. Bed rest and muscle relaxants in combination with pain killers can provide you relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
