What does severe pressure in the lower back indicate?

18 yrs ago I was assaulted on my lower back with a wood broomstick. now my back draws extreme pressure - till it makes a pop deep in the back then the pressure is released and the pain leaves for a while till the pressure builds up again. what would that pop noise be. its always in the same place, the loudness of it differs though.

As per your description, problem is at the level of spine. Without MRI reports, it is difficult to find what pathology is there in vertebrae.

I advise you to consult neurosurgeon and get your MRI spine done. He will guide you further whether physiotherapy will help you or surgical intervention is required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
