There could be many causes to back pain. More information would be needed from the person's history (personal, family, work, trauma/ accident). One could also begin looking at posture or sleep patterns to see if the body is put into mal-positions for a majority of the day that could be leading to tight muscles and thus perceived pain.
That's a loaded question. You would need a thorough evaluation to determine the cause of your back pain.
Misalignments of joints of the spine are a common cause of back pain. A complete history and exam is needed to determine the cause of your back pain.
Get examined/X-rayed first, then follow the chiropractor's advice.
A good chiropractor would take a complete history and do a thorough examination in order to answer your question.
Have an exam and X-rays performed to find out.
That's a great question, thanks for asking. There are quite a few possibilities for the cause of consistent low back pain. My first suggestion has to be for you to see a chiropractor or healthcare provider to find out the cause of the pain via exams, special tests and/or imaging if necessary. If you're not sure about that route the next best thing would be for you to keep a journal about your low back pain pinpointing all the things that affect you daily from waking up to laying back down. Once you do that you can investigate for yourself the causes (and solutions) for your pain. Personally, I'd do both!
Hopefully this helps.

There could be a pinched nerve in your spine. Always a good idea to get a yearly exam and X-rays to see!
Hope that helps.

Why is your back hurting? It could be anything from a kidney infection to a disc herniation. Spend the money to go see a chiropractor in your area who starts the process with a thorough physical exam. Chiropractors are back specialists, after the exam, they can determine what is the appropriate course of action.

Pain is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong. There could be many causes of back pain. You should get it checked by a professional. A thorough history and examination will give the provider clues to the underlying cause of you back pain. Once a cause is established and a proper diagnosis is made, then the provider can give you a treatment plan. Hopefully the doctor will uncover the underlying cause and treat you appropriately. A good experienced chiropractor should be able to help you with this.
Need more info, but to answer the question as stated, it could be a thousand different things. When you do a history and consult with practitioner, it usually comes out as to what most likely caused your pain, then do tests (Xray, scan , exam, etc) can usually nail down what is causing your current pain and whether it is fix-able or manageable. Considering your youth, you should get with practitioner that sees a lot of same conditions. If fix-able, fix it! If not, decide the best way to manage it, otherwise these things can worsen with age.
You likely have misalignment of the bones of your pelvis and low back that are contributing to your pain. I highly recommend finding a chiropractor that can do an exam and determine the cause of your pain. You could have reduced pain after just one visit!
There can be several reasons why your back hurts. Do you sit a lot? Do you stretch and move regularly? Did you injure your spine in sports, car accidents or falls in your earlier years?

For someone your age the cause is most likely from postural imbalances or an old injury that is now causing pain. Chiropractic is a great option to treat both of these, as well as other, causes of pain.
Upper and middle back pain may be caused by: Overuse, muscle strain, or injury to the muscles, ligaments, and discs that support your spine. Poor posture. Pressure on the spinal nerves from certain problems, such as a herniated disc. See a professional.
