These are very common reason for backache.
But it is very uncommon to think of caffeine when you have backache.
Let us see how caffeine affects your backache and

Normal Healing Process:
To heal your damaged tissue, that tissue must receive a proper blood flow.
Your blood will carry required oxygen and nutrients to heal the damaged site.
These nutrients will provide raw material to heal the damage.
How Caffeine affects your Healing Process:
Caffeine narrows the smallest blood vessels at the tip of your arteries.
This reduces the blood flow to your damaged tissue.
Along with the blood, oxygen and nutrients which are essential for the
healing also can not reach to the damaged tissue.
Thus, caffeine slows down your healing process.
