Hi there....low back ache could be due to a number of causes like spondylitis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, disk prolapse. You will need a complete examination including x rays and probably serum calcium and few other blood tests. Kindly consult a orthopedic who will completely evaluate you and treat you accordingly. They will also be able to teach you back strengthening excercises
