Doctor: HelloThank you for posting your query on ATD.I have gone through your query and understand your concern. I think i t is unrelated to that accident. However, it can be confirmed by x-ray lumbar spine whether there is an old injury.It is likely to be due to a weakness of bone and muscle of the back. The second cause can be vitamin deficiency specially vitamin D. You are advised back exercises. You can get your vitamin D level checked and if found low you can take supplements of vitamin D3. For pain relief, you can take analgesics such as ibuprofen.Hope your query get answered.Wishing you a good health.Take care.
