Thanks for writing to us.
The persistent pain in the lower back and the hip is most commonly seen due to age related degenerative changes of the spine. An MRI scan will help in determining the extent of damage to your spine. Rest, pain killers, muscle relaxants and physiotherapy helps in improvement.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
