What Causes Severe Back Pain In An Elderly Person?
Can be a muscle spasm.
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain that you are feeling is likely to be related to muscle spasm or a mild inflammation like myositis.
There can be a mild soft tissue injury also which cannot be detected by an X-ray. It is best to get an oral muscle relaxant prescribed from your physician and do a hot compress. Doing a regular physiotherapy will also help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
