Sudden jerks or movements and back pain are closely associated with each other. In fact making sudden jerks is one of the common causes of back pain.

Usually sudden jerky movements occur while lifting heavy objects. It is generally thought that back pain is caused due to the heavy weight of the object. However the pain is caused due to jerky movements made while lifting and improper techniques of lifting.
