Lower back pain, tightness, pain on bending backwards. Doing pilates, running a lot. Suggestions?

Hi! I am 15 female, and i m currently suffering some some lower back discomfort. I ve been doing pilates for 6 months and i do alot of running. First, my lower back started to feel really tight, then it started hurting when i bend back. I can no longer bend back as far as i could before. Is this something serious? Will my back get better in time? What should i do?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you are having in your lower back is likely to be due to a positional anomaly. Taking adequate rest, mild muscle relaxants, hot fomentation and pain killers are likely to help you. Avoid any heavy exercise till the pain subsides.
