My grandfather is 84 years old. He is having a severe pain in the lower back just above the hips. He walks 2-4 km daily. He exercises in the morning daily. He consulted a doctor and nothing was found. Every night before sleeping I give a massage with an oil in his lower back. But still he is having pain. What could be the reason? How can he prevent the pain? Thank you. Waiting for your urgent response.

The pain could be because of age related changes in posture. You should take him to a physiotherapist and do specific exercises.
