Lower back always sore

It can be caused by t rauma to spine, lifting heavy weights etc. Infection of spine like tuberculosis can also present like low back ache. Compression of nerve roots may cause soreness of low back and in this case pain radiates down to lower limbs from lumbar region. Consult Orthopedician to know the exact cause for it.
